The goal of the LEF Foundation's New England office is to fund the work of independent documentary film and video artists in the region, and to broaden recognition and support for their work, both locally and nationally. Through its Moving Image Fund (MIF), LEF provides funding across all phases of production, supporting films from the early risk-taking stage through a project's completion. Since its inception, MIF has supported over 200 films with approximately $3.5 million dollars in funding to New England-based filmmakers.

LEF Program Director Sara Archambault will conduct a grant workshop at the Main Street Museum on Tuesday, October 15 at 6:00PM for potential Moving Image Fund Applicants. During the workshop, participants will:

  • learn about LEF's basic guidelines and requirements
  • watch samples from recently funded LEF films
  • hear about LEF's new online submission process
  • enjoy some free snacks and conversation!
