As always we are looking for high-quality film, radio, and new media productions that document California subjects and issues and that use the humanities to provide context, depth and perspective. Funding amounts range from $10,000 to $50,000 and a cash or in-kind match is required. Please note that California residency is not a requirement for eligibility.
For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previously supported projects, please visit www.calhum.org/grants/california-documentary-project-grant.
Cal Humanities is an independent non-profit and a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Since 2003, we have awarded over $4 million to projects that document the California experience, including The Case Against 8, Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning, Seeking Asian Female, We Were Here: The AIDS Years in San Francisco, Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone, Romeo is Bleeding, Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle, and many more.
