Until now, 80% of the program's funding has been provided by the European Union; however, the funding from the EU ended on December 31, 2013. The EU is currently assessing how it will distribute its funding for cultural programs from 2015-2020.
The total estimated budget for the one-year program in 2014/2015 is $500,404. With the help of generous supporters such as Steven Spielberg’s Righteous Persons Foundation, we have successfully raised 60% of the total annual budget and we are currently working intensively to secure other major funding sources. On June 1st, 2014, we launched our call for applications for the 2014-2015 Greenhouse program; any support that we can gain for Greenhouse will enable this year’s program to go ahead without delays.
All of us strive to make the world we live in a better place. History teaches us that accomplishing that simple but Olympian task requires taking an endless number of small but significant steps. Working with cinema school graduates and young emerging filmmakers— young people with the potential for becoming our region's future cultural leaders— at the early stages of their development is one such step. Please join Greenhouse in helping to build a peaceful future for our troubled corner of the world.
