Black Public Media Open Call

Black Public Media Open Call

Friday, November 15, 2019

Throughout its decades of supporting Black storytellers through funding and training opportunities, Black Public Media has always been thrilled to announce an Open Call to our incredible creative community. We look forward to learning about the range of stories told in a variety of styles, platforms and perspectives that are underway. BPM’s Open Call is our chance to celebrate the complexity of the Black experience through story.

This year’s Open Call is for feature-length documentaries, shorts (non-fiction or scripted) or limited podcast series for public media distribution. Selected projects will receive production funds to advance their work. There are no limits on the subject area. However, we encourage work that will promote discourse and engage audiences around a critical social issue. In addition, we welcome proposals that target specific viewers such as children and teen audiences.

Projects will be funded in amounts ranging from $50,000 - $150,000, depending on the type of project, scope and phase of development/production. Please note that BPM funding awards are licensing agreements for public media distribution.
