Humane Society | ACE Documentary Film Grant

by The Humane Society of the United States
(Washington D.C.)

The Humane Society of the United States is once again presenting the Animal Content in Entertainment (ACE) Documentary Film Grant. Launched in 2006, the ACE grant is awarded to filmmakers for the creation of a documentary that highlights animal advocacy.

The $20,000 prize will be given to a filmmaker that best succeeds in merging animal issues with a compelling narrative. Second and third place will respectively receive $2,500 and $1,000.

In addition to the cash endowment, the ACE program can help the winning filmmaker with distribution, promotions, and screenings of the film upon completion. Writers, producers, and directors can also use ACE as a resource for fact-checking, stock footage, referrals to experts, and script consulting. ACE seeks to inspire filmmakers to find creative and engaging ways to portray animal issues in their films.

Past judges include representatives from Discovery Channel, AFI, HBO, National Geographic, PBS, and Animal Planet. The winner will be announced in December at The HSUS Hollywood office's VIP Cast & Crew Party.

I just learned that the film VEGUCATED is a finalist for the ACE grant. I saw it in October, as part of Dallas' Texas State Veggie Fair weekend, and it is very informative while being highly entertaining. It does a lot to promote plant-based diets,giving the health, ecological and ethical reasons to do so, while remaining highly accessible to the general public. I know it will save the lives of thousands upon thousands of animals. I hope it wins the grant, making it possible to be distributed to a wider audience.
