Applications are now open for the PUMA Creative Catalyst Awards Spring Call 2012 in partnership with the BRITDOC Foundation. The PUMA Creative Catalyst Awards is an international documentary development fund of up to €5,000 (about R51,000) per film.
The awards are designed to support the development of documentary film ideas and give filmmakers resources to shoot and edit their trailers.
Although they welcome one-off, creative documentary ideas of any length and subject, in any style and form, they are particularly keen on ideas that speak to PUMA Vision’s core values of Safe, Peace and Creative.
With three open calls each year, the awards are open to emerging and established filmmakers working anywhere in the world. To get some idea of the projects funded in the past, visit the Award Film Directory: (http://puma.britdoc.org/film_directories/2/view?orderby=created_at&filter=Catalyst+Awards&sort=asc)
