Sundance Institute Documentary Grants

Written by: FFT Webmaster | December 7th, 2011

While buzz is building in the run-up to the upcoming Sundance Film Festival, the Sundance Institute is continuing its year-round services for independent filmmakers. The Sundance Institute has announced the list of 29 feature-length documentary films that will receive $582,000 in grants from the Documentary Film Program (DFP), including two films selected to receive grants from the Cinereach Project  and one Time Warner Foundation Fellow. Awarding grants is a core activity of the Documentary Film Program, which provides creative support to nonfiction filmmakers globally. Proposals are accepted twice a year, and submissions are reviewed by a jury of creative film professionals and human rights experts. The next round of funding comes in Spring 2012, when the DFP celebrates its 10th anniversary, having awarded grants to more than 300 documentary filmmakers in 61 countries.
