Berkeley FILM Foundation

The Berkeley FILM Foundation is a 501(c)3 grant program for independent filmmakers founded by the City of Berkeley, Wareham Development, and the Saul Zaentz Company with a mission to nurture, sustain and preserve the thriving local film community while attracting the next generation of filmmakers.  The BFF focuses on supporting the social, historical and innovative documentary and dramatic works.  Many of our grant winners have gone on to screen at US and international film festivals, been recognized with prestigious awards, received television broadcasts and are making a difference around the world.

BFF GRANT CYCLE IS NOW OPEN.  To apply for grants in the area of production, post-production and distribution, please go to the BFF website for guidelines and applications.  Deadline to apply is May, 15, 2015

Please browse the BFF website often for news and announcements on our events and updates on grant winners and their films. Join the conversation on the official Berkeley Film Foundation Facebook page.
