The Rogovy Foundation⎪The Miller / Packan Fund⎪Documentary Film Grant

by The Rogovy Foundation
(New York)

The Miller / Packan Documentary Film Fund provides grants to feature-length non-fiction projects that address social issues and inspire others. The Fund supports filmmaking in advanced development (up to $10,000), production and post-production stages (up to $25,000).

The fund seeks projects that open our eyes through a strong premise, critical thinking, detailed analysis and competing views. Awarded bi-annually, the Fund will award grants totaling $150,000 to between six and ten film projects. The Summer open call ends May 15th, and the Winter open call ends November 15th.

Applications from all countries are accepted but the project must have an IRS 501(c) (3) status or a Fiscal Sponsor. All films submitted must be in English or have English subtitles.
