The Fledgling Fund’s Film and Creative Media Grants support outreach and audience engagement for social issue documentaries and range from smaller planning grants to implementation grants for projects that have a clear plan ready to launch. A small number of these grants support post-production for timely projects that have strong social change potential. Grants range from $5,000 to $30,000. Projects will be judged on the strength of the film, the stage of the project, the needs of the movement, the strength of the proposal and the issue area.
Field building grants focus on building the capacity of Fledgling grantees and the social issue documentary field. They range from programs, institutes and residencies that strengthen outreach and audience engagement skills to film festivals and other events that showcase social issue documentaries as a tool for change. Field building grants range from $5,000 to $25,000.
Letters of inquiry for the spring funding cycle are due February 12, 2013. For more information, see the link below:
