KET Fund for Independent Production
Updated June 16, 2010
For Producers: Due to budget reductions, as well as economic uncertainties for the future, KET regrets that there will not be a new round of Kentucky Fund for Independent Production (KFIP) applications. We value the work of independent producers in Kentucky and hope that you will contact KET when you have finished projects that you would like to present to a statewide audience.
In the past, the KFIP helped fund projects ranging from documentaries and dramatic features to animated shorts. In return, KET viewers got the first chance to see the completed works.
Several KFIP-supported films aired nationwide. They include Robby Henson’s Pharaoh’s Army (pictured at left), Eren McGinnis and Ari Palos’ The Spirituals and Beyond the Border, Tobacco Blues by McGinnis and Christine Fugate, Heather Lyons’ M&M Smith: For Posterity’s Sake, Walter Brock’s LAND (and how it gets that way), Andy Garrison’s Wilgus Stories, and Louis Guida’s You Ain’t Seen Nothin’: Tales from the Kentucky Derby.
