Documentary Short Film Fund

Monday, May 14, 2018

With support from John D. And Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Sundance Institute’s Documentary Film and Native American and Indigenous Programs have partnered on a short film fund aimed at finding, nurturing and elevating documentary stories from Native and Indigenous storytellers from around the world. Non-recoupable grants of up to $25,000USD will be awarded to support up to 5 projects that will have the opportunity to launch on The Guardian’s video platform. Situated at the intersection of journalism and documentary film, this partnership aims to encourage a wider range of independent storytellers to make short films of deep emotional engagement for broad impact on mainstream news media as well as the culture at large.
* ‘Indigenous’ includes First Peoples, Native, First Nations and Aboriginal peoples who belong to; or who have had an uninterrupted relationship with their land.* This is distinct from those people who have arrived from another place to live in a country.
