“Film funding made simple” is an understatement. The rolling deadlines mean there’s no time wasted. There’s a quick turnaround and winners were selected when the application process was still fresh in mind (a big difference from traditional funding bodies). Genera has truly discovered and put into action a modern film financing mechanism to suit the needs of contemporary filmmakers. - Ethan Race (Bitter Taste)
