Redford Center Grants

Redford Center Grants

The 2020 Cycle of The Redford Center Grants program, funded by the New York Community Trust, invites applications from filmmakers working on feature-length environmental documentary films focused on issues and solutions that take place in, or are relevant to, the United States and U.S. territories.

Seven feature-length film projects focused on increasing public engagement and action on environmental issues will be selected. We are looking for impact-driven stories that present inclusive and equitable perspectives on environmental issues, that leave audiences with a sense of efficacy and urgency to engage, and that offer examples of individuals taking action in their own communities. Each grantee project team will receive:

  • A $20,000 development grant
  • Travel and lodging for our Story Development Summit at Sundance Mountain Resort
  • GoPro Camera and tech kit, along with expert support
  • Access to issue experts and film industry leaders
  • Consideration for up to $125,000 in production funds toward the feature film in Year Two
  • Fast-track consideration for fiscal sponsorship with The Redford Center

Our 2020-2021 grants cycle open call will run from April 1 - June 1, 2020.
