Redford Center Grants

Redford Center Grants

The Redford Center understands the power of a well-told, well-timed story to create positive environmental change. Redford Center Grants supports independent filmmaking teams as they develop feature-length film projects that drive awareness, education, and action on a variety of environmental topics. We provide each of our grantees with:

  • A $20,000 development grant
  • A GoPro camera and gear kit
  • Travel and lodging for our Story Development Summit at Sundance Mountain Resort 
  • Access to issue experts and film industry leaders
  • Consideration for up to $100,000 in production funds toward the feature film in Year Two
  • Fast-track consideration for fiscal sponsorship with The Redford Center

Our 2018-2019 grants cycle is currently underway, and we are not currently accepting applications. Please join our mailing list so you're the first to hear future announcements.

Visit our Grantee Projects Page to learn more about the films we are currently supporting, and watch the video below by our partners at GoPro for a Cause for an inside look at our most recent Story Summit.

Not everyone has the same motivations for wanting to protect and restore the planet. But the solutions presented in these grantee films—and the people who are driving them—remain our inspiration and hope.

Thank you to the New York Community Trust for supporting this project.

"There has never been a more important time to double-down on our efforts to protect and restore the environment. Organizations working at the nexus of art and environment, and filmmakers in particular, have an opportunity to reach a much wider audience and we must bring more people along." —Kerry McCarthy, New York Community Trust
