CrossCurrents Doc Fund
The CrossCurrents Doc Fund is an international production fund that fosters storytelling from within communities whose perspectives have been historically underrepresented or marginalized.
Initiated by the R&M Lang Foundation in 2013, the Fund promotes inclusion in the documentary space celebrating all doc forms and the diverse perspectives of storytellers. In particular, it focuses on emerging filmmakers who have a connection to or shared experience with their subject, as well as sharing stories with audiences within and outside the featured community.
Theatrical Stream opens July 2017.
Interactive/Short Stream opens September 2017.
Dedicated to short, interactive or experimental works, this stream awards one $10,000 CAD grant and Hot Docs fellowship to one applicant each year.
The R & M Lang Foundation generously established the CrossCurrents Doc Fund in 2013.LEARN MORE
In 2016, the Panicaro Foundation introduced a stream to address the needs of filmmakers with feature projects. Every year, one or more projects will each receive a grant of up to $30,000 CAD.
The CrossCurrents Theatrical Stream is underwritten by the Panicaro Foundation.LEARN NOW
