2011 CALIFORNIA DOCUMENTARY PROJECT
Grants for film, radio and new media
Deadline October 3, 2011
The California Council for the Humanities has been bringing people together around their history and culture for more than 25 years. The California Council for the Humanities connects Californians to ideas and one another in order to understand our shared heritage and diverse cultures, inspire civic participation, and shape our future.
CCH is an independent, nonprofit state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Originally a granting organization, the Council began to create and manage humanities programs and projects of its own in the early 1990s and is now a leader in statewide humanities programming, with a grants program connected to its programming efforts.
Guidelines for the 2011 California Documentary Project (CDP) are now available HERE! CDP is a competitive grant program of the California Council for the Humanities and supports the research and development, production, and public engagement stages of film, radio, and interactive new media projects that document the California experience and explore issues of significance to Californians. Eligible projects may apply for film or radio production funding up to $50,000, new media production funding up to $20,000, or research and development funding up to $7,000.
The Council will hold free informational grant workshops on how to apply for the 2011 California Documentary Project. Please see below for information on locations, dates and times. To RSVP, visit HERE. Please review the CDP grant guidelines in advance and bring your questions to the workshop.
