Hosted by Inside Out Film Festival
Established in 2018, Inside Out’s RE:Focus Fund aims to address industry inequities through providing direct financial support to women, non-binary, and / or trans filmmakers telling LGBTQ stories. Founded through a lead gift from Martha McCain, the fund has distributed more than $150,000 in festival travel grants and professional development programs for filmmakers since its creation.
In 2019, Inside Out expanded the fund with the launch of the RE:Focus Fund Post-Production Grants to support post-production and promotion of short and feature films.
Projects which meet the eligibility criteria will be considered for a cash grant from $500 to $2500.
Completed projects that are accepted into the 2023 Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival will also be eligible for festival travel support through the RE:Focus travel bursary program.
