Cal Humanities Invites Applications for California Documentary Project
Cal Humanities

      
    
Cal Humanities is accepting applications for the California Documentary Project, a competitive grants program that supports documentary film, radio, and new media productions designed to enhance the understanding of California and its cultures, peoples, and histories.

Projects must use the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective and be suitable for California and national broadcast and/or distribution. CDP grants support projects at the research and development, production, and public engagement stages.

1) Research and Development: Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to strengthen the humanities content and approach of documentary media productions in their earliest stages. Projects must actively involve at least three humanities advisors who can help frame and contextualize subject matter throughout the research and development phase.

2) Production: Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to strengthen the humanities content and approach of documentary media productions and help advance projects toward completion. Projects must be in the production stage and actively involve at least two humanities advisors in the production process.

Grant requests must be matched on at least a 1:1 basis by cash or in-kind contributions from non-federal sources.

Eligible applicants must have tax-exempt status or have a tax-exempt organization as fiscal sponsor.

Visit the Cal Humanities website for complete program guidelines, application materials, and/or to register for a workshop or the webinar.
