Making a successful feature film is one of the most difficult things there is to do. Having adequate financing in place is just part of the challenge. Several other elements are just as critical including a good script, a talented cast and crew, a laundry list of sophisticated technology, decent weather, and a lot of luck. With a completed feature film in hand, a filmmaker still must find a company that shares a passion for that film and will agree to distribute it properly. For many successful independent filmmakers, that is where their job ends. But should it end there?
The American Film Institute has received a $350,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to embark upon a landmark initiative to study thousands of short films released in the silent and early sound eras. Titled Behind the Veil after a lost 1914 film directed by pioneering filmmaker Lois Weber, the project will be spearheaded by the AFI research team at the AFI Catalog, the world’s most authoritative, freely accessible database of every American feature film and co-production released in the first century of the art form. The project is intended to document the cultural impact of women and people of color in the creation, distribution, and reception of early cinema.
