Now in its second year, the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund provides finishing funds to documentaries that promote social change and illuminate issues in need of comprehensive coverage currently missing in mainstream media.
In 2009, the Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund will offer grants ranging from $10,000 – $25,000 totaling $100,000. Eligible films will be feature-length documentaries that are in production or post-production, with the intended premiere exhibition in 2010. Films should be able to sustain a festival and/or theatrical run and should resonate with a mainstream U.S. audience. International applicants are welcome. Additional information can be found at the Rules and Regulations page:
Films should examine or document people who are ignored, ostracized or otherwise marginalized; people fighting for social or political change; or broad social movements. The ideal film will challenge the status quo not just as pertains to subject matter, but also in form. Funding will be awarded to projects that best fulfill the mission of the program and to those where granting amounts will have significant impact.
Apply Now! Deadline is Thursday, February 5, 2009. Fund recipients will be announced in Summer 2009.
