About Carole Dean
Carole Dean is the author of the best selling “The Art of Film Funding, 2nd Edition: Alternative Financing Concepts” and winner of the 2012 WIFTS (The Women’s International Film & Television Showcase) Lifetime Achievement Award. She created the short-end film business in 1970 which helped spawn the independent film revolution by giving filmmakers affordable film stock.
Carole Dean is the founder and President of From the Heart Productions, and has helped thousands of filmmakers get funding for their films through Fiscal Sponsorship, Mentorship, Education, Crowdfunding, and Free Resources.
After seeing how difficult it was for filmmakers to raise money for important works, she created the Roy W. Dean film grants in 1992 in honor of her father. The grant has given over two million dollars in donations to date. It has helped many excellent films that, without the grant, may have never been made. Learn More about Carole Dean.
How to Fund Your Film takes you step-by-step through everything you need to know to successfully fund your film.
From crafting your proposal and budget to pitching investors, winning grants, and running a crowdfunding campaign, Carole teaches you the industry professional secrets you need to get the funding you need.
