The Hot Docs-Blue Ice Group Documentary Fund helps enable more African documentary filmmakers to tell their own stories and contribute to a new generation of the African documentary community. In 2016, the fund was renewed with an additional $1.25 million CAD, bringing the total investment to $2.35 million.

The fund provides development grants of up to $10,000 CAD and production grants of up to $40,000 CAD are awarded to approximately four to ten projects annually.

In addition to financing, the fund provides a peer-to-peer mentorship programme where grantees may team up with international production partners to bring their projects to international markets, festivals, broadcast and online audiences. Additionally, grantees will have travel, accommodation and accreditation support to attend Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival and the Hot Docs-Blue Ice Group Filmmakers Lab.

To date, the Hot Docs-Blue Ice Group Documentary Fund has awarded funding to 40 projects from 15 countries.
