California Documentary Project Grant Application Deadline: October 15!


The California Documentary Project (CDP) is a competitive grant program of California Humanities that supports documentary film, radio, and new media productions that enhance our understanding of California and its cultures, peoples, and histories. Projects should use the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective and be suitable for California and national audiences through broadcast and/or distribution. CDP grants support documentary projects at the research and development and production stages and grant amounts range from $10,000 to $50,000. A cash or in-kind match is required. California residency is not a requirement for eligibility.
