A woman sits at a table inspecting rubber balloons.Receiving a seed grant from the Pollination Project made me realise in a deeper way than I had before that there are people out there who believe in what I am doing and want to support me. Film making can be a lonely exercise. A lot of time is spent behind a computer, quietly researching your topic, setting up interviews, and editing materials. It is not always easy to have faith that your project will have a meaningful impact on the world. The Pollination Project and their friendly team gave me not only the financial boost that I needed to take my documentary to the next level but also the encouragement that I didn’t even realise that I needed.
