Fund to Produce Shorts and Offer Free Impact Strategy
With generous support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Working Films offers Docs In Action, a program funding and distributing short documentaries that explore social and environmental justice in communities across the United States. Through Docs In Action, Working Films is providing finishing funds to makers of short documentaries and offering early impact strategy for filmmakers, with a special focus on serving filmmakers of color and other underrepresented artists.
We are a new source of finishing funds for the makers of shorts that are responsive and accountable to the needs of changemakers, while maintaining the highest caliber of cinematic quality and journalistic integrity. We are not accepting applications at this time. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on these opportunities!
We are also offering impact campaign strategy free of charge to four films annually that hold great promise to serve as tools for civic engagement. We’re prioritizing underrepresented creators, including filmmakers of color, women, gender nonconforming artists and emerging creators.
