Regrant Funding Opportunities
The Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) is managed by Wave Farm in partnership with New York State Council on the Arts, Electronic Media and Film Program.
*** Application Deadline January 1, 2016 ***
Please note the following opportunities in support of electronic media and film organizations, as well as individual artists, in all regions of New York State.
For New York State Media Artists:
The Media Arts Assistance Fund provides support for the distribution and exhibition of works in all genres of time-based and moving image media, including emergent technology. Grant awards assist artists in making recently completed works available to public audiences, and advance artistic exploration and public engagement in the media arts. Grant awards assist artists in meeting expenses including, but not limited to: duplication of preview, screening, and exhibition copies; promotional materials including documentation and schematics of media-installation and new-media works. Other distribution/exhibition requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Artists may request funding support up to a maximum amount of $10,000.
For New York State Media Arts Organizations:
The Media Arts Assistance Fund (MAAF) provides funds to hire outside consultants to support organizational and professional development, as well as convening and conference attendance. Eligible organizations have missions specific to the media arts, and dedicate the majority of their programming to technology as an art form. Applications from multi-disciplinary organizations will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but are not a MAAF priority. Organizations may request funding support up to a maximum amount of $4,000.
