This program will provide financial assistance to selected low-income post production professionals, to help them attend important industry events, conferences and trade shows that would otherwise be inaccessible due to cost.
Applications are now open to attend ACE EditFest Los Angeles, August 12, 2017
Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Applications close June 27th, 2017.
To apply for a full event pass, and travel and accommodation if needed, please fill out the form below.
To be eligible:
Applicants must be currently residing in the United States.
Applicants must be working full-time in the field of film and/or television post production. Freelancers and interns will be accepted, but must not have another source of income, from outside of the industry. While some post production professionals are also required to work in production, the majority of the applicant’s work must be in post production.
Applicants can not be current students.
Applicants must earn an annual income of equal to or less than the median income of their city of residence.
Proof of income will be requested of shortlisted applicants, who will be asked to submit a letter from their current or most recent employer stating pay rate and hours; and a copy of their most recent tax return.
The location of the applicant (within the USA) will not be a discriminating factor in his/her eligibility for the program. However, budgetary restrictions may be a negative factor if significant travel is required. This will be determined by the committee, in consultation with the Treasurer and the Board, on a case-by-case basis.
