Congratulations to Devon Damonte, Ruth Hayes, Martha Colburn, Richard Reeves, Deborah Stratman, Nisha Platzer, Georg Kozulinski, Mathias Bo, Josh Weissbach and Lori Hiris.
One of the things that ICS does are the LightPress grants, these are giving out twice a year January 1st and July 1st. These are 3 hour vouchers to use at LightPress to have really nice 4K scans of your films made. These are a $900 value. Since July 2016 ICS have given out $38,000 in these grants.
our mission is to provide goods and services to filmmakers who work outside of what the mainstream conception of filmmaking is. We provide these services to filmmakers free of charge with no strings attached. We look for filmmakers who have built a body of work and have shown dedication and work ethic over the years. These services are designed to help off set the enormous costs involved in filmmaking and to encourage them to produce more work and to promote cinema as an art form .
