Opportunity for Documentary Filmakers

The Sundance Documentary Film Program, in partnership with the Skoll Foundation, will provide $1.2 million in film project grants to enable the development and/or production of new feature-length independent documentary films that frame, examine, and amplify social entrepreneurship as an innovative approach to the central questions of our time.

Priority will be given to documentary films that combine the art of storytelling with topics in the field of social entrepreneurship, including the work of specific social entrepreneurs. We are seeking films that demonstrate a high potential for co-production and distribution possibilities, including theatrical, broadcast, home, and educational DVD sales, etc. Films at any stage of development, production, or post-production may apply. Completed films will not be considered. The initiative anticipates funding up to 8 films in the range of $30,000-$150,000 per project. Editorial control must be retained by the filmmaker(s).

Deadline for Submissions: August 15, 2008
Awards announced: December 2008
