FCSF is founded and run by experienced filmmakers who can help you get your film project over the finish line. We know what it takes to fund, produce and successfully distribute independently produced films. We can also draw on consultants we know and trust who can help in the process.

We are available to meet with you for an initial complimentary consultation, and to work with you throughout the process of making your film in whatever ways you might need assistance.

We offer support in the following areas for discounted fees to our fiscally sponsored projects, and for reasonable fees for all other film projects.
