Texas Filmmakers, a 501(c)(3) arts organization, is pleased to announce the return of the Texas Film & Video Grants (TFVG). Last year, Texas Filmmakers awarded cash and equipment grants to local and regional filmmakers. This year they hope to double the total awards and to facilitate an even broader spectrum of talent throughout the state. Texas Film & Video Grants is a program designed to provide financial assistance to independent and emerging media makers who live in the State of Texas. Assistance is provided to artists whose work shows potential, skill, and creativity. Awards are distributed on a per-project basis; up to a maximum of one thousand dollars ($1,000) per project.
