FUNDING OPPORTUNITY: California Documentary Project for Film, Audio, and Interactive Documentaries
California Humanities invites proposals for the 2021 California Documentary Project (CDP) grant program for film, audio, and interactive media projects that explore California in all its complexity.
Productions of any documentary style and length are eligible—shorts, features, podcasts, web series, VR, (and more).
Funding is available in two categories:
· Research and Development Grants up to $10,000
· Production Grants up to $50,000
We seek documentary projects that bring new and previously unheard perspectives to light; reflect a broad cross-section of Californians’ stories; and help reveal the breadth and range of California’s cultures, peoples, and histories. Projects should use the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective and plan to engage broad audiences through multiple means, including but not limited to broadcasts and online distribution, community screenings and discussions, and in classrooms, libraries, cultural centers, film festivals, and more. California residency is not required to apply.
