Rooftop Films today announced the four recipients of their 2009 Filmmakers' Fund Short Film Grants. It gives me a lot of pleasure to spread the word about this because, in addition to being someone whose career benefitted greatly from a short film grant, I happen know two of the recipients. Recipients and summaries of the projects:
ROOFTOP FILMS AND THE CHICKEN & EGG FUND SHORT FILM GRANT + Sara Zia Ebrahimi: Norman Schwartzkopf Made Me Gay
ROOFTOP FILMMAKERS’ FUND SHORT FILM GRANTS Underwritten by Cinereach
+ Moon Molson: Crazy Beats Strong Every Time
+ James M. Johnston: Knife
+ Dustin Guy Defa: We Have No Home
Way to go Sara Zia and James -- and congrats to all!
