travel expenses?

Has anyone found a grant or award for travel / lodging expenses to film festivals? My husband and I won the Michael Brinkman Fellowship to attend the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival, but travel (or lodging) is not included.
Any ideas?

I'm not sure why someone would give you a grant for this, unless it were part of a larger budget to produce a film for some worthy cause? Do you treat your video work like a business in terms of taxes? I imagine you could deduct any business related travel expenses (see your accountant). Of course you actually have to *make* money to be able to take deductions :-)
