Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund Accepting Submissions Through Monday, April 22
By Lisa Hasko
The International Documentary Association is now accepting proposals for the The Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund, which provides production support for full-length documentary films. The Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund is made possible by a grant from The New York Community Trust.
Named in honor of the landmark documentary filmmaker, the Fund provides annual grants totaling $95,000 to be used in the creation of original, independent documentary films that illuminate pressing issues in the United States. In 2013, grants will be made to up to 6 projects that tell a compelling story and focus on one of Pare Lorentz's central concerns-the appropriate use of the natural environment, justice for all or the illumination of pressing social problems. The deadline to submit to this fund is Monday, April 22, 2013.
