Musicbed today announced the launch of the Musicbed Film Initiative (with the goal to inspire filmmakers), providing an opportunity for independent filmmakers to get the resources they need to fund their dream films and bring their passion projects to life.

Open to filmmakers around the globe and now in it’s second year, the Initiative will give away more than $50,000 in grants, including cash, production gear and products from fellow sponsors, to eliminate some of the biggest barriers to filmmakers pursing their dream films.  This year’s program will award one winner and two runners-up.

  • Winner: $40,000 in cash and production gear
  • Runners-Up: $5,000 in production gear

Running over the course of the next 3 weeks, the Musicbed Film Initiative calls on filmmakers to submit a story synopsis and mood board for their dream film. Musicbed staff will review each submission carefully and choose the award recipients on April 8th.

  • There is no fee to participate and the entry process is simple:
  • Write a 350 word synopsis describing your passion project
  • Collect a mood board of 15 images
  • Submit for free at musicbed.com/filminitiative
