The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation is accepting proposals for documentary film and transmedia projects between Monday, August 6, 2012 and Friday, September 7, 2012.
The program seeks to fund documentary projects that address the significant social challenges of our time or explore important but under-reported topics. Domestic and international topics are welcome, and preference will be given to projects that align with one of MacArthur’s grantmaking areas. To learn more about these areas, please visit http://macfound.org.
Support will be provided for production and post-production activities, and to experienced filmmakers based in the U.S. with track records of completing feature-length films that have been broadcast nationally and internationally. The typical grant range is between $50,000 and $200,000. For more information and to apply, please visit http://macfound.org/programs/media/ and click “Grant Guidelines.”
