CrossCurrents Doc Funds

Promoting inclusion in the documentary space, the CrossCurrents Doc Funds foster storytelling from within groups whose perspectives have been historically underrepresented. The filmmaker’s deep connections to the community will offer a unique perspective on the stories they share.

Applications for the 2021 round of disbursements are closed.


There are two funding streams:

  • CrossCurrents Canada Doc Fund supports short and feature-length documentaries from emerging and sophomore Canadian filmmakers who are Indigenous, Francophone, Deaf and/or have a disability, racialized and/or persons of colour. Generously supported by Netflix.
  • CrossCurrents International Doc Fund supports interactive, short and feature-length doc projects by filmmakers from, and telling stories of, underrepresented and marginalized communities around the world. Short/interactive strand supported by the R&M Lang Foundation, which initiated the Fund in 2013; feature-length strand supported by Panicaro Foundation.
