The Blueprint for Communities Foundation Film Fund
The Blueprint for Communities Foundation Film Fund (bcfFILMfund) is providing assistance to filmmakers who have identified a compelling injustice that deserves exposure in order to garner a greater audience.
Social inequities, ethical breeches and insults to the environment are all of particular relevance.
Our intention at bcfFILMfund is to offer funding to film projects that have been thoroughly researched and are already in the development process.
While we are interested in important stories, that is less a matter of scale than emotional magnitude.
“The audience reaction after a particularly moving doc at last years Sundance Festival was akin to watching 1000 people simultaneously have a “eureka” moment. Each and every person there recognized that they could be a part of change. We saw a way to create that momentum for others by focusing the Blueprint for Communities Foundation on documentary film funding.” --Minette Nelson/BCF Film Fund
Filmmakers, whose work is passionate, and have a proven ability to craft a story are all encouraged to apply for our support.
Documentary filmmaking seems to us to be an exquisite art form that shines a spotlight on that which deserves illumination. As backers, we are looking for those who share that vision.
“A well crafted documentary should move the viewer, outrage the viewer, or both. Ideally its content, will also spur others into action. Sadly, the human race consistently manages to commit injustice and perhaps the most effective way of righting those wrongs is through the artful portrayal of those offenses.” --David Eckles/BCF Film Fund
Applications are considered on a rolling basis. Thorough detail on research, access and existing funding commitments are requested.
