To fund a film you will first off have to create a proposal that would have all the details, equipment, and estimated budget. You could set up a separate bank account so that you don’t spend the money that you have raised for your film on daily living especially if you have other film investors invested in it.
One way to raise money for a film project it to create a Go Fund Me account or some other crowd founders “artists can post projects and raise small funds from thousands of interested supporters.” Social media is good for film investors to be able to see your progress on your film.
You can also raise money for a film by going to or looking up on the internet for potential film investors and seeing if anyone is interested in funding you film.
Applying for grants is helpful and could generate money. But I don’t know how you going about applying for one.
Scholarships and competitions you can enter into them with your ideas and show them little clips of what you would want to do and wait. If you win you can get the funding.
