POV's Call for Nonfiction Digital Projects

POV is seeking digital documentaries from independent media creators and technologists that push the boundaries of nonfiction media for co-production. Co-productions will be funded in the range of $15,000-$50,000 and producers do not necessarily need to be based on the United States. Funded projects are more likely to be focused on mobile and emerging technologies.

POV is also seeking to license short web-native documentaries or chapters of web-native documentaries. These productions must be based in the United States, and will be funded in the range of $2,500 to $10,000.

Funding Available: $2,500 - $50,000
Submission Deadline: May 30, 2014
Application Form Link: pov.org/submit
