About ICS LightPress Grants
Every six months, in January and July, the Interbay Cinema Society gives grants to 10 filmmakers working with 16mm or 35mm film to have 4K high resolution scans of their work made through LightPress, a transfer house in Seattle.
We give grants to established and emerging filmmakers. Students are not eligible.
Grants are given for 3 hours of scanning. Note that the scans are not “in real time,” so how much material can be scanned depends on a lot of variables. This is a $1200 value.
Filmmakers who receive grants must use them within the six- month period specified, or the grants expire.
