Last month, we launched our project Black Web Fest x Web Monetization. Black Web Fest x Web Monetization, is a program that provides training for creators to learn how to use web monetization to access new streams of funding. We'll be providing free training, a two-month free Coil Membership and four creators will be awarded a $5,000 grant.
One creator selected from each category (i.e., Best Short Film, Best Short Documentary, Best Web Series, and Best Animation) will receive a $5,000 grant ($4,000 to use on their next project + $1,000 to use on marketing their film or series) and support to stream and monetize their content on Cinnamon.Video.
Submissions close June 25, 2022. Winners will be announced before or by July 25, 2022, at 11:59 EST.
If you know of any independent Black filmmakers or animators who maybe interested in particpating or you think should learn more about how to monetize their work with web monetization please share. Here is the link for our registration: https://blackwebfest.org/bwf-x-web-monetization/
