Are you an African filmmaker working on the final stage of your film project? Our next grant call-out will be aimed exclusively at filmmakers.


Film is a powerful medium which has the immense potential to inform, educate, raise social awareness and entertain. Africa No Filter wants to partner with storytellers who want to tell stories that contribute to shifting the stereotypical and harmful narratives through The Last Mile Fund.

The grant will be open to applicants in the continent, and the diaspora will fund narrative-changing films that are in the final stages of production. Films must have appealing storylines that address a prevailing negative stereotype about or within Africa or reflect a refreshing, more contemporary and nuanced narrative of the continent, along with a storyline that is compelling to a broad audience both at the pan-African level and internationally.

Applicants will be expected to show evidence that the film is in the final stages of completion, including links to a rough cut.
