Arts Council is proud to serve as a fiscal agent for THE MIGHTY.
First, THE MIGHTY will call for diverse, inspiring story submissions, stories that will be produced in Winston-Salem, perhaps extending in location as far as the Piedmont Triad, but definitely hubbed in Winston-Salem.
Second, while in-roads are being made to change the NC film incentive to generate opportunities for filmmakers in the future, THE MIGHTY will revitalize and energize the film community in WS now: it will be nationally streamed and marketed as uniquely connected to the regional arts and film community. THE MIGHTY will be a platform for notable guest directors and others who want to be part of our diverse, creative story bucket.
Third, the productions will offer opportunities to some accomplished UNCSA film graduates, who would benefit from a professional production springboard, and, in turn, their film training will refresh and strengthen interest in expanding Winston-Salem's film production imprint.
Last, this anthology series, unlike indie films which only offer a short term shot in the arm to the business community, offers an on-going, revenue-generating platform for strong, challenging, dynamic storytelling.

In 2021, Arts Council launched a new service to the community by serving as a fiscal agent for projects that fulfil our mission as the chief advocate of arts and culture in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. A fiscal agent is an established IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that agrees to accept donations on behalf of a group that does not have IRS tax exemption. By serving as a fiscal agent for various local projects, we are better able to support the arts and cultural community by accepting funds on our partner's behalf and granting them back to our partner organization. This gives donors a tax deduction for their gift and helps for us to better fulfil our mission at Arts Council.
