Deadline Extended for Arab Filmmakers to Apply for ADFF's SANAD Grants

SANAD, the Abu Dhabi Film Festival's fund for Arab filmmakers, is issuing a final call for submissions for its current application cycle. The deadline, which was formerly January 26, has been extended to February 5, 2012. The deadline for the following SANAD cycle will be June 26, 2012.

Now entering its third year, SANAD supports films at two key stages of the production process: development (with grants of up to USD20,000 per project) and post-production (with grants of up to USD60,000 per project). SANAD ("support" in Arabic) is committed to enabling both established filmmakers and newcomers to develop or complete their feature-length narrative or documentary projects, while the newly launched SANAD Emarati supports short-film projects.
