Raise Funds for Your Project

Dance Films Association offers Fiscal Sponsorship for dance film projects in any stage of production and form. Ranging from feature length documentary projects to short experimental films, we believe that every idea should have the opportunity to become fully realized. Through Fiscal Sponsorship, you can apply to grants that require non-profit status and collect donations that are tax-deductible. We also provide consultation and build a personal page for your project on our website.


As fiscal sponsor, DFA receives a sum equal to 7% of funds dedicated to the film project and DFA makes payments to fiscally sponsored projects on a monthly basis. For example, payments made to the film project through DFA for the period between Sept 15th and Oct 15th would be issued to the film project on Nov 15th. All artistic and proprietary rights, title and interest in and to the project belongs to the filmmaker and the filmmaker may copyright the project in their name. In return, we ask to receive appropriate credit and for DFA’s logo to be included in trailers and the final film.
