The Tilke Hill W.i.P. Award
The Tilke Hill W.i.P. Award supports the completion of a Western New York made Work in Progress (WNY W.i.P.) with a $1,500 award. The award supports short film and episodic media makers creating narrative work that is avant-garde and fearless in its approach.
The Tilke Hill W.i.P. Award is a memorial grant created in honor of Tilke Hill. It's awarded in her name to strengthen and encourage the efforts of the WNY filmmaking community.
To be considered for this award, applicants must be WNY residents, 18+ years of age.
