Redford Center Grants

Redford Center Grants

Redford Center Grants provides development and production funds, story and networking support to filmmakers who understand the power of a well-told, well-timed story to inspire positive environmental change .

Thanks to the support of the New York Community Trust, we launched our inaugural Redford Center Grants call in 2016 resulting in the selection of 7 grantee projects: feature length impact films covering a wide range of issues, including toxics, species, climate, S.T.E.M, desertification and social and environmental justice.
 
We hosted our grantee filmmaking teams at a Storytelling Summit at the Sundance Mountain Resort and provided $15,000 each in development funds for the production of a “proof-of-concept” short. Many of these shorts are now screening at film festivals around the country and 4 of our grantee filmmaking teams are aiming to complete their feature films by the end of 2017.        

We were so inspired by the 282 filmmakers from 28 countries who applied for our inaugral grants program that we named 7 Redford Center Grants honorees and produced this short pitch video compilation to share the inspiration
