IDA Enterprise and Pare Lorentz Funds Open Call May 29 - June 25, 2024.

 The image used in the flyer is a film still from Enterprise Documentary Fund 2022 grantee Our Hoolocks.

This year, we are streamlining our grant applications into one open call!

Using the same Core Application questions, you can apply to IDA's Enterprise Documentary Fund and Pare Lorentz Fund simultaneously. A few questions will be specific to each Fund, but all other questions will be used for both applications. Learn more about the Open Call here.

The theme for the 2024 Pare Lorentz Fund will be Gender Justice. We are leaving the theme broad and open to interpretation on purpose. Though this Fund was historically only available to US makers, this year, the Fund is open to artists worldwide. Similar to last year, Pare Lorentz will also be selecting one immersive nonfiction project for the 3-project cohort.
