Sundance Institute Documentary Fund

Sundance Documentary Fund is a core element of the DFP, granting between $1 and $2 million per year to support U.S. and international contemporary independent documentary films. With submission deadlines in February and July each year, the Fund reviews 1,700-2,000 proposals annually, and grants about 45-55 projects from filmmakers around the world based on recommendation from a committee of human rights experts and film professionals. In funding such work, the Sundance Documentary Fund encourages the diverse exchange of ideas that is crucial to fostering an open society and public dialogue about contemporary issues.
