Fledgling Documentary Outreach: Ongoing

Fledgling has an open rolling application process for grants to support outreach and engagement for social issue documentary film projects that have the potential to inspire positive social change around issues that affect the most vulnerable. Applicants can submit online at any time and will be asked to include a description of the project, its social change goals and plans for moving the project forward. Typically, film projects have at least a rough cut. Proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis and appicants will be notified of decisions within three months.

Grants typically range from $10K – $25K. Fledgling supports audience engagement planning and implementation. Support for planning is for building the strategy for outreach and engagement and can be used before a project is complete to prepare for its launch. Grants are NOT available to support production or post-production.

DEADLINE: ONGOING

Fledgling Rapid Story Development: Ongoing

Non-fiction visual stories that bring together diverse communities are more urgent now than ever, and Fledgling believes that they need to be deployed quickly, in a range of formats, to help amplify the work of individual leaders, nonprofits and movements. The people behind Fledgling know filmmakers and other media makers have creative ideas about how to do this (and sometimes have footage that can be repurposed), but often lack the financial resources to implement them quickly.

To that end, Fledgling’s Special Fund for Rapid Story Deployment provides grants ranging from $2,500-$10,000 to support short non-fiction films and/or other visual stories that can be completed and distributed quickly. Priority will be given to projects that have a plan to distribute the work in ways that deepen the debate around our most critical social issues and those that are well positioned to make an impact quickly. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and must be submitted via our online application system. Review process will be expedited, and Fledgling will notify applicants of proposal’s status within two weeks
