The Focus Features Africa First Short Film Program will award up to five (5) emerging African filmmakers $10,000 (U.S. dollars) each towards the pre-production, production, or post-production of their short film. Winners will also participate in a three-day workshop in New York City. So, if you or someone you know would be interested in this opportunity, I hope you'll pass along this information right away.

Speaking of Africa...
Yesterday, surfing the web for the first time since I moved last week, I decided to stalk my favorite website builder's work and came across a call for applications for the Focus Features Africa First Short Film Program. The application period opened May 12th and closes July 15th, so if you don't have an idea you've already fleshed out pretty seriously, it's probably too late. And the competition is only for African filmmakers. But you never know.
