2017 CA Documentary Project Funding Opportunity, deadline Nov 1

Hey folks. First – sorry about that extra post yesterday. I had a mailchimp hiccup. Second, see below for the latest call for submissions from California Humanities. They fund a lot of great indie projects. Go for it!
Happy weekend,



Grants for film, audio and interactive documentaries

Deadline: November 1, 2017



California Humanities is pleased to announce the 2017 deadline for the California Documentary Project (CDP), a competitive grant program that supports the research and development and production stages of film, audio, and digital media projects that seek to document California in all its complexity. Projects should use the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective, be suitable for California and national audiences, and seek to reach, inform and engage broad audiences through multiple means, including but not limited to radio and television broadcasts, podcasts, online distribution and interactive media, community screenings and discussions, in classrooms and libraries, at cultural centers, film festivals, and more. California residency is not a requirement for eligibility.


Funding is available in two categories:


·        Research & Development Grants up to $10,000

·        Production Grants up to $50,000


For more information on grant guidelines, application instructions, and a list of previously supported projects, please visit the California Documentary Project grants page.
