Meet the Funder: Fork Films with Kat Vecchio, September 14, 2018

Being the creative force, fundraiser and all around believer in your independent documentary is daunting!   Having the support of fellow filmmakers (particularly other women filmmakers) is so important thats why I try to take advantage of the WMM webinars as much as possible.  Ive gain so much from them.  Last year, I tuned in to the Fork Films webinar featuring Kat Vecchio, the Forks Director of Grantmaking.  It was very informative. I had applied to Fork before with a historical project (very hard to fund!) and didnt get funded.  During the webinar I asked if it made sense for me to re-apply and if they were truly open to historical films.  The answer was yes to both questions.  I decided to follow-up with Kat via email.  She was beyond gracious and helpful.  Armed with her insight and the information I gathered from the webinar, I re-applied and recently received funding from Fork Films.  I know this wouldnt have happened if I hadnt attend the WMMs webinar.  Thanks, WMM!

With the new 2018 federal tax code in place and major changes affecting filmmakers, this webinar is a must. The new laws not only affect filmmakers individually, but their projects, production companies, and investors as well. The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and tax filing season is right around the corner. The sooner we are all aware of how the new law affects us, the sooner we can plan for the effects, make informed decisions and be prepared.

Join us as Women Make Movies welcomes indie film, tax and business consultant Fred Siegel (CPA) and Entertainment Lawyer Stephen D. Holmgren in a live webinar. This lively conversation will cover the 2018 new tax code and key tax and business considerations for independent film producers seeking a prudent path to sustainability. Among priority topics to be addressed, this program will highlight the new federal tax law and changes that may affect you, your company, your projects, your budget, your investors, and your ability to finance and complete your films. Register here.

**A copy of this webinar will be available to all registrants for three months after the recording is posted.
