Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund | Documentary Film Grant

by International Documentary Association (IDA)
(Los Angeles, CA)

The Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund

Total Grant Fund: $115,000
Individual grants will range from approximately $15,000-$25,000

The Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund provides production and post-production grants to be used in the creation of original, independent documentary films that illuminate issues in the United States.

Each year the fund will focus on select issue areas that were hallmarks of Pare Lorentz's films.

Projects must focus on this specific area and on one of Pare Lorentz's central concerns—the appropriate use of the natural environment, justice for all or the illumination of pressing social problems in the United States.

We’re looking for projects that exhibit objective research, artful storytelling, strong visual style, high production values, artistic writing, outstanding music composition, as well as skillful direction, camerawork and editing.

A program of the International Documentary Association, the Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund is made possible by The New York Community Trust.
