IDA's current funding opportunity: The Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund is accepting applications from now until June 28th.
This year the fund will provide production and post-production grants up to $25,000 to social-issue films exploring symptoms of systematic racism. The applicant does not need to be a US resident, but the project must focus on Challenging White Supremacy in the United States. Films can shine a light on the impact of white supremacy in many areas, including but not limited to policing, banking and finance, education, health care, land rights and housing.
