Minnesota filmmakers Andy Awes, Patrick Coyle, and William Eigen have been selected as finalists for the new film production reimbursement program funded with Arts and Cultural Heritage Funds from Minnesota’s Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment. The Legacy Arts and Cultural Heritage (LACH) Production Reimbursement Program, established by Minnesota Film and TV and Independent Filmmaker Project Minnesota, is designed to support professional, mid-career filmmakers’ feature length narrative or long form documentary projects that are close to the production stage, but have not yet started filming.
More than $500,000 is available to be awarded. A review panel representing film and television professionals, educators, and members of arts organizations from Minnesota selected the projects to be considered for further review.
The LACH Production Reimbursement Program finalists are producing films that align with Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage criteria and also meet specific Program financial criteria.
Maximum reimbursements are $175,000 for narrative features and $125,000 for documentaries. Further review will take place in the next two months and up to three awards will be announced in February 2013.
Noted Minnesota filmmaker Craig Laurence Rice is the Program Administrator.
