The Adrienne Shelly Foundation supports the artistic achievements of female filmmakers through a series of production grants, providing recipients with critical financial support and consultative access to the Foundation's advisory board of actors, directors, producers, composers, law, publicity, academic and trade professionals. Reflecting Adrienne's spirit, generosity, courage and whimsy, our goal is to recognize the tremendous passion and commitment of women artists in creating their own work, and provide them with support and guidance particularly during periods of transition and struggle.
ASF Awards its 50th Grant!
We are thrilled to announce that we've awarded our 50th filmmaker production grant since our inception in 2007! Fifty incredibly talented women from all over the world have been touched by Adrienne's legacy. We look forward to awarding so many more grants in the years to come. A big congratulations to Meredith Danluck for being our 50th! Her script STATE LIKE SLEEP is terrific and we can't wait to see the film someday soon! And we thank our partners at the Sundance Institute Feature Film Program, through which Meredith was a participant.
