Deadline: 04-13-2012


San Francisco Foundation Accepting Proposals for Bay Area Documentary Fund:


The San Francisco Foundation Bay Area Documentary Fund seeks to support films exploring timely and compelling social justice issues that have been historically underexposed, misinterpreted, or ignored. The foundation invites accomplished film, video, and digital media artists to apply.


Awards ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 will be given to support the early production phase of documentary projects by experienced filmmakers with an esteemed body of previously created work. Projects should align with the foundation’s programmatic goals and address issues relevant to one or more of the five Bay Area counties served by the foundation (Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, or San Mateo).


To be eligible, filmmakers must reside in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, or San Mateo counties. Only filmmakers with a proven track record of planning and finishing substantial film projects will be considered. Students may not apply.
