CAAM is accepting applications for their Documentaries for Social Change Fund until November 20 highlighting Asian American filmmakers with an emphasis on historically underrepresented Asian American communities.
According to the program release, the fund will be prioritizing grants from South and Southeast Asian communities and areas outside of major cities:
“We invite applications from Asian American documentary filmmakers with an emphasis on filmmakers from historically underrepresented Asian American communities such as South & Southeast Asians, plus regions outside the major metropolitan cities. For this Fund, we invite ambitious, social issue projects including series that push the boundaries for Asian American storytelling
The Fund will be open to all level of makers from emerging to veteran, however, the Fund will prioritize filmmakers from historically under-represented Asian American communities such as South and Southeast Asian, traditionally undeserved geographic areas like the South, as well as regions outside major metropolitan cities.
This Fund will significantly support CAAM’s mission to advocate for Asian American stories and issues to be included in the national discourse and to codify our voices in the fabric of American society today.”
The fund is supported via the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and will offer up to $10,000 for social issue documentary projects.
