The Berkeley FILM Foundation is a 501(c)3 grant program for independent filmmakers funded by the City of Berkeley, Wareham Development, and the Saul Zaentz Company with a mission to nurture, sustain and preserve the thriving Berkeley film community while attracting the next generation of filmmakers. The BFF focuses on supporting the ideals reflected in Berkeley culture: 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.
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.
