How to Budget Your Film

Hosted by Mike Petersen of Peterson Polaris, this event will explain how to make a proper budget for your short or feature film. It’ll make sure you don’t forget about the small stuff, how to properly allocate funds, what to do if the unexpected happens, and even how to use grants to your advantage.

This event is sponsored by the Calgary Society of Independent Filmmakers. CSIF was founded in 1978 by a collective of twelve filmmakers who saw the growing need for film resources and film equipment on the traditional Treaty 7 territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Iyarhe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3), also known as Calgary, Alberta. Now over 40 years later we are an integral part of the growing cultural community in Calgary and are excited about new collaborations and opportunities.
