Black Public Media's Annual Open Call - Deadline Sept. 26, 2022

Black Public Media's annual Open Call is our chance to celebrate the complexity of the Black experience through story. This year we will support projects in two key ways: (1) production funding and (2) 360 Incubator+, a workshop opportunity with peers in the field.

We are calling for broadcast-length documentary (1-2 hours) and short (30 mins or less) nonfiction or scripted projects that are currently in pre-production, production, or post-production and intended for public media distribution. We accept proposals for pilot episodes of a broadcast-length or shorts limited series. The limited series must be 3 to 5 episodes. We welcome a range of subjects, creative approaches and perspectives as long as the work promotes discourse and engages audiences around a critical social issue. However, we are especially interested in projects that address the following content priorities: climate change, environmental justice, health disparities, art, culture, and Black history.

Application closes Sept. 26. Apply now!
