More funding opportunities from the NYS Council on the Arts. Details and deadlines below.
The New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency, has announced that The ARTS Council of the Southern Finger Lakes (The ARTS) is the new administrator of two state-wide regrant programs for NYSCA Electronic Media and Film (EMF).
The two programs, Presentation Funds and Finishing Funds, were previously administered by the Experimental Television Center (ETC) in Owego, NY. Another previous ETC program, the Media Arts Technical Assistance Fund, is now being managed by free103point9 Transmission Arts, in Acra, NY. All three programs are supported with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.
Presentation Funds offers partial support to non-profit organizations located in New York State for in-person appearances by independent artists working in film, video, sound, new media and Web-based art. The mission of the program is to encourage opportunities for conversations between artists and audiences, support the creative programming of independent media-makers, and help increase appreciation for electronic media and film as an art form throughout New York State.
Deadlines are four times a year:
December 1, 2011 for projects occurring between January 1 – March 31, 2012
March 1, 2012 for projects occurring between April 1 – June 30, 2012
June 1, 2012 for projects occurring between July 1 – September 30, 2012
September 1, 2012 for projects occurring between October 1 – December 31, 2012
Finishing Funds provides support to New York State artists for the completion of film, video, sound, new media and Web-based art. Awards are made annually and range from $500 to $2,500. The postmark deadline for applications is March 15, 2012.
