About the Development Grant

The IDA Enterprise Documentary Fund development grant is currently on hold for 2021 and 2022. From 2017-2020, Enterprise provided $600,000 in development funds to 40 documentary projects taking on in-depth explorations of original, contemporary stories and integrating journalistic practice into the filmmaking process. Inclusion and diversity, both in terms of the filmmaking team and subject matter, are a priority of the fund.

See the latest cohort of projects receiving the development grants.
