The Rogovy Foundation funds projects that are transformational, with enlightening narratives and inspiring characters. It supports documentary film as an instrument for change, delivering greater knowledge, compassion and awareness.
The Rogovy Foundation announced the launch of the Miller/Packan Documentary Film Fund. Awarded bi-annually, the fund will award grants totaling US$150 000 to between six and ten film projects. The first half deadline for submissions is 8 May 2016.
All countries are accepted but projects submitted must have an IRS 501(c) (3) status or a fiscal sponsor. Additionally, all films submitted must be in English or have English subtitles.
The Miller/Packan Film Fund provides grants to feature-length non-fiction projects that address social issues and inspire others. The fund supports filmmaking in advanced development (up to US$10 000), production and post-production stages (up to US$25 000).
The fund seeks projects that open eyes through a strong premise, critical thinking, detailed analysis and competing views.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, with the first half winners to be announced in July 2016. Further details on the Miller/Packan Film Fund can be found on the Rogovy Foundation website.
