Welcome to Sundance Documentary Film Program

Feb 2, 2011


The Sundance Documentary Film Program is currently accepting applications for the Spring 2011 funding cycle. Grants will be announced in July 2011. Next Postmark Deadline: February 9, 2011.


The Sundance Documentary Fund supports cinematic feature documentaries about pressing Human Rights, social justice, civil liberties and related topics from the US and internationally. Proposals to the Documentary Fund are evaluated on effective storytelling, global relevance, originality, artistic innovation and potential for social engagement. Please note we do not fund shorts, webisodes, online series, or strictly historical, biographical, NGO, or educational films.

There are two deadlines per year, generally the first week of February and July. Award decisions take approximately six months. Proposals must be submitted online and DVDs mailed by the upcoming deadline of February 9, 2011. There are no geographical restrictions on who can apply to the Fund.

The review process is highly competitive. Up to 2000 proposals annually may be reviewd, but will generally fund no more than 60.
