PROJECT GREENLIGHT is a documentary series (which has aired on both HBO and Bravo) about what it really takes to make a film. Executive producers Matt Damon and Ben Affleck want to invest millions of dollars in budding directors to help them make full-length movies. Before each season begins, filmmakers are invited to submit their work for review and consideration for the project. After several rounds of elimination to narrow down the thousands of entries, Damon, Affleck, and members of their production team determine which writer and/or director will receive the funds and have his or her project "greenlit" for production. With the help of industry mentors, including previous Project Greenlight winners, they must work within their budgets and manage their time, team, and talent to successfully produce a feature film. At the end of each series, the finished production is screened.
