This is the second part of our four part 'Funding Your Film' series, focusing on researching and your approach to fundraising. Our advice?

Suggested keywords along with your topic include grants and institutional equity. Then what? Move to LinkedIn. Christine walks through step-by-step her recommendations for researching potential funders and then moving to outreach. And, don't forget your posse!
