Electronic Media + Film

Please refer to the Finishing Funds and Presentation Funds pages for information on the 2016 grant programs.

 

Presentation Funds

Presentations Funds grants support New York State non-profit organizations for in-person presentations by independent media artists.  The goal of this funding is to increase appreciation of electronic media and film through engagement between artists and audiences and to support programmatic initiatives within New York State’s arts and cultural organizations.  Presentation Funds are supported by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) and administered by The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes (The ARTS Council).

Presentation Funds involve two key components – 1) an artist must present his or her own work and 2) an element of this presentation must be distinct from the work and interactively engage the audience.
