      IF you ever had a question about funding for your film, this is the
      class to take. Holly Million is a filmmaker and has written about this
      subject for years and an intensive class can only do you well:

      How To Ask People for Money
      Instructor: Holly Million
      Saturday, March 7, 10:00 am–6:00 pm
      Ninth Street Independent Film Center
      Enrollment limited to 9
      Enroll now: $180 (SFFS Member)/$200 (General Public)

      New filmmakers emerge daily and all of them are seeking funds from
      precisely the same sources, yet foundations that fund filmmakers are
      increasingly pinched in the current economy. In contrast, raising
      funds from individual donors allows for more control of—and easier
      access to—crucial monies while solidifying relationships that ideally
      will pay off for years to come. This class covers a lively, hands-on
      process to help filmmakers craft the messages and tools they need to
      approach individual donors. You will put this information to work
      during the class and prepare to take your show on the road through
      mock pitch sessions with a panel representing potential funders.
