CrossCurrents Doc Funds

Promoting inclusion in the documentary space, the Funds foster storytelling from within groups whose perspectives have been historically underrepresented.

There are two funding streams:

  • CrossCurrents Canada Doc Fund, supported by Netflix: For emerging and sophomore Canadian storytellers who are Indigenous, Francophone, Deaf, with disability, or who are artists of colour.

  • International funding: For emerging international storytellers whose perspectives have been historically underrepresented. Short/interactive projects are supported by the R&M Lang Foundation, which initiated the Fund in 2013; feature-length project support is underwritten by the Panicaro Foundation.

Applications for 2018 are closed.
