CA Documentary Project grants, deadline Nov 1

Hey CA producers – a BRILLIANT funding opportunity here for film, radio, and new media. At least two FC members have received funding from CDP in the past, so drop a line if you have questions and I'll put you in touch with one or both of them. Good luck!
