What is the Cleveland Indie Film Incubator Project?

The Incubator is much more than making a movie and screening it at the end of the year. Selected filmmakers will fully immerse themself into the craft of filmmaking by developing their ideas in workshops. Tentative topics in the workshops include: writing, pre-production, production design, how to tell a story with lighting and framing, how to approach casting day, directing and how to effectively communicate with cast and crew on set. Availability for the workshop dates will be taken into account when selecting the filmmakers to participate.


  • February 27th in person
  • March 5 via Google Meets

Cleveland Camera Rental will provide $400 for each filmmaker towards their cash budget and at least $5000 in rental credit for each film. CCR will assist the filmmaker in finding crew. The filmmaker will be responsible for any other production costs associated with their film.

When filming is complete, the post-production process begins. Although filmmakers will have to ultimately choose their post-production team, CCR is here to help guide in these decisions! Filmmakers will have about 2-3 months to finish producing their film.

They intend to have a screening event for all the films in November of 2024 on a date to be determined.

Along with filling out a Google Form application, you will have to send in a video pitch. The video pitch criteria is as follows:

Video Pitch Criteria

  2. Share with us the main idea for your film. Include things like genre, era, characters, setting, themes or anything else.
  3. How is this achievable? If you have an elaborate set design or wild special effects in mind, tell us what steps you will take or resources you have to turn your big ideas into a reality!
  4. Tell us about yourself and why you should be chosen.
  5. The pitch must be submitted as a video featuring the filmmaker. Otherwise, there are no restrictions on it. Understand that the video pitch will be made public if selected to participate in the Incubator.

The main purpose of the video pitch is to show your excitement for the film you want to create! We are looking for a motivated individual who is open to learning as they go, while still allowing their own creative individuality to come through.

The submission deadline is February 22nd, 2024. We will only consider one video pitch per filmmaker. Make sure to check our blog and social media to see the full selected list of filmmakers!

If you have any submission questions, feel free to message [email protected] and our CCR staff will get back to you. Good luck and happy pitching!

Our work brings awareness to issues such as racial and economic justice, nurturing relationships that cross the invisible boundaries of race and class. We believe representation matters, and we are committed to engaging Teaching Artists who are representative of the communities with whom we collaborate.
  • Excellence: We encourage the development of the whole artist, nurturing an artist’s personal, interpersonal, and artistic growth. This environment of self-mastery calls participants to own their greatness with pride, be accountable to their peers, and be engaged, curious, and connected to their community.
  • Enthusiasm: We approach the artistic process with openness, rigor, intention, and joy! Our programs cultivate an enthusiastic learning environment that supports creative expression while nurturing a high degree of discipline and focus. We encourage our participants’ creativity, and we also challenge them to explore as many levels of their creative potential as possible.
