Doc Society is a global non-profit committed to enabling great documentary films and connecting them to audiences globally. We bring people together to unleash the transformational power of independent documentary film. We serve individual filmmakers and the growing network of partners who support them globally. We help build new models, aiming to innovate, share freely and innovate again. A commitment to anti-racism, economic & climate justice is embedded in and informs all we do.
We are looking for creative nonfiction projects that can complete production in 2021 with support from the Climate Story Fund. This can include long form non-fiction, shorts, and episodic documentaries, as well as podcasts and AR/VR.
The Fund will also consider proposals from completed creative nonfiction and fiction projects that are looking to pilot an impact campaign in 2021 to engage audiences who have felt excluded from the climate conversation.
In this initial round, the Climate Story Fund will support 6-8 projects with grants ranging between $20,000 to $100,000 per project.
The selection process will be guided by the Fund’s principles, including prioritizing projects that embody inclusion and diversity across team and subject matter, and exercise responsible practices when engaging story participants and communities.
Each grantee will be invited to participate in an impact lab where storytellers will collaborate closely with practitioners, ranging from climate scientists to impact producers to movement builders, to ensure they are building upon existing expertise and advocacy efforts to engage their intended audiences.
