The MacArthur Foundation will be accepting proposals for documentary film production funding ONLINE for the first time. Submissions will be open from July 15 – 31, 2013. Submissions close on July 31, 2013 at 3 PM CDT.
The MacArthur Foundation’s Media Program provides support for the production of documentary films that highlight human stories within complex social issues. The Foundation believes that these issues are under-reported in other media and seeks to fund projects that will reach a broad audience through public television broadcast, community and policymaker screenings, and online.
The grants are made to production companies and non-profit organizations based in the United States, with the typical grant amount ranging between $50,000 and $200,000.
