The Idaho Commission on the Arts doles out several grants a year to artists statewide. Writers, painters, sculptors, photographers and more receive honors, distinctions and monetary prizes for the advancement of the arts in Idaho.

Looking forward to its next wave of grant recipients, the commission has issued a call for Idaho filmmakers to submit portfolios to help on a new project.

From the body of applicants, the commission will select six filmmakers to complete short, artistically rich vignettes about the grant recipients. Each selected filmmaker will receive $1,500 to complete the project by the June 30, 2020, deadline.

To qualify, filmmakers should submit application materials—some examples of past projects and a statement of relevant experience—by Monday, Sept. 30.
