INDIE GRANTS is a one-of-a-kind training and professional development program for independent filmmakers and other production professionals. We fund and produce independent short films by homegrown South Carolina filmmakers, bring in top-notch department heads and other collaborators, and have Trident Technical College film students work under union crews as real-world training.
Recent collaborators include Oscar-winning DP Russell Carpenter (Titanic, Avatar 2), actress Anna Camp (Perfect Harmony, Pitch Perfect) actor AJ Bowen (You’re Next, The Sacrament), DP Peter Simonite (The Perfect Guy, 2nd Unit DP on Tree of Life), and writer Brad Land (Goat).
INDIE GRANTS shorts have been official selections of top international film festivals like Sundance, Tribeca, Slamdance, Austin Film Festival, Palm Springs Film Festival, LA Film Festival, Tall Grass, Stiges, Nashville Film Festival, and many more.
