Sundance Institute includes Srdan Keca's Museum of the Revolution in latest slate of documentary fund grantees
The latest cohort of Sundance Institute Documentary Fund Grantees, announced today, comprise 23 nonfiction film projects from 21 countries of production. Unrestricted grant support, totaling $540,000, will benefit the projects across various production stages from development to post-production. Grants are made possible by The Open Society Foundations and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
“During a time of shared crisis, it is essential that Sundance continue its steadfast support of artists across the globe,” said Documentary Film Program Director Carrie Lozano. “These films creatively assert our common quests, conditions and resilience as they interrogate notions of individual and collective power.”
“Creative support for nonfiction storytellers feels especially urgent at the present moment,” added Documentary Film Fund Director, Hajnal Molnar-Szakacs. “These documentarians are helping us make sense of our collective history and reality, and through innovative approaches on diverse topics, helping us imagine a collective future.”
The Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program is made possible by founding support from The Open Society Foundations. Generous additional support is provided by Ford Foundation; John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation; Luminate; Sandbox Films; Skoll Foundation; The Kendeda Fund; The Charles Engelhard Foundation; CNN Films; Compton Foundation; John S. and James L.
