Submissions are open for the CAAM Documentary Fund Open Call from Wednesday, September 8, 2021, through Wednesday, October 20, 2021. Due to adjustments in CAAM’s annual calendar of activities, and more targeted public media programming efforts, the Documentary Fund Open Call is moving from a bi-annual to annual application period. In light of this, please note that this round will be the only opportunity to apply for public television funding until CAAM’s Documentary Fund re-opens in late 2022.
CAAM’s Documentary Fund provides production funding to independent producers who are developing documentary films that showcase the Asian American experience for a national audience via public television. Awards typically range between $10,000 and $50,000 and can go toward production or post-production costs. Applicants must be 18 years of age or older, and be citizens or legal residents of the United States or its territories.
Submissions for documentary projects are now being accepted. Applications will close on Wednesday, October 20 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
