With generous support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, we are now funding the creation of new work to expand the canon of films available for grassroots groups and NGOs to enhance their programs, extend their reach, and move their missions forward. We are pleased to launch an inaugural Request for Proposals (RFP) for Working Films’ Docs in Action Fund.
We’re looking for documentaries that illuminate and demonstrate community-centered solutions in response to climate disasters.
We will award at least two grants of up to $30,000 each in support of the production of short non-fiction films (up to 30 minutes in length) that can be used to mobilize residents who have been impacted directly, as well as audiences across the United States, to demand “just recovery”.
We are defining just recovery as the long-term cultural changes, planning, partnerships, investment, and infrastructure needed to build intersectional models and alternatives for communities hit first and worst by the catastrophic impacts of climate change.
Filmmakers can submit proposals for new work, works-in-progress, or cut-downs of longer-form documentaries.
