Call for Proposals: Bay Area Documentary Fund – Deadline April 15th

2013 Bay Area Documentary Fund Grantee, Frank Wong's Chinatown

Many award winning documentaries have emerged from the San Francisco Bay Area. In recognition of this notable documentary tradition, The San Francisco Foundation invites accomplished film/video/digital media artists to apply to the Bay Area Documentary Fund for early production support.

This year, awards ranging from $10,000 to $20,000 will be given to support documentary projects in early production phase by experienced filmmakers with an esteemed body of previously created work. Projects should address issues pertinent to the five Bay Area counties of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, or San Mateo and align with the Foundation’s programmatic goals. The San Francisco Foundation is interested in documentaries exploring issues that have been historically underexposed, misinterpreted, or ignored.

Complete proposals are due Wednesday, April 15, 2015, by 11:59 p.m. Awardees will be notified on Wednesday, July 15, 2015.

Visit the Bay Area Documentary Fund page for information about the fund and instructions on how to apply.
