CROSSCURRENTS DOC FUND

How does the CrossCurrents Doc Fund define an underrepresented community?

We want you to tell us. It is important for us to understand from your perspective how the community you are telling the story from has been historically underrepresented.

What are considered as eligible costs?

Eligible costs include standard industry production and post-production expenses.

  • Finishing costs (e.g. captioning, versioning, prints) are NOT eligible
  • Proposals seeking support for costs generally incurred as part of film’s development process (e.g. research, development of a script and story proposal, and production of a teaser or trailer) are not eligible, unless in exceptional circumstances.
  • Marketing, distribution and community engagement costs may be eligible as a portion of the grant (maximum 20 per cent). A detailed engagement and distribution strategy should be included with this request.

What are considered as a professional credit?

Professional credits include any commercial (distributed theatrically, on broadcast, DVD or via viable/curated digital platforms like iTunes, Netflix, Hulu) or festival-run short, feature-length or series project (fiction or documentary) where you held the role as director.
