The ITVS Diversity Development Fund is Now Accepting Applications - Deadline: September 7, 2012

Deadline: September 7, 2012

The Diversity Development Fund provides up to $15,000 in research and development funding to independent producers of color to develop single documentary programs for public television. Projects should speak to the ITVS mission to serve underrepresented audiences with programs that take creative risks, explore complex issues, inspire dialogue and express points of view seldom seen on commercial or public television. To date, projects selected for the Diversity Development Fund have had national broadcasts on Independent Lens and P.O.V. and have leveraged support from organizations including the National Minority Consortia, the Sundance Doc Fund, Creative Capital Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Ford Foundation. Funding activities may include travel, research, script development, preliminary production for fundraising/work-in-progress reels, or other early phase activities.

The Diversity Development Fund Supports

  • Producers from cultural and ethnic communities historically underrepresented on public television.
  • Single documentaries or creative genre combinations
  • Projects that have not yet begun production
