CLOSE UP encourages filmmakers from the Middle East and North Africa to apply now for Catapult Film Fund’s Development Grant! Submissions close NOVEMBER 30.
Catapult gives early support to propel projects forward that hold the promise of a story that should be uniquely told in film. We provide development funding, up to $20,000, to documentary filmmakers who have a strong story to tell, have secured access, and are ready to create a fundraising piece to help unlock critical production funding. This enables filmmakers to develop their projects to the next level, at the early stage when funding is hard to find.
Catapult supports powerful and moving storytelling, by filmmakers with a strong voice across a broad spectrum of subject matter. Catapult is not tied to any specific social issue agenda, providing support and encouragement to filmmakers telling a full range of stories on film in whatever form fits the film and artist. As a result Catapult-supported films can range widely in style and scope.
Applicants needing assistance to accommodate a disability may request an accommodation at any time. To request reasonable assistance for completing the application, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at +1-415-738-8553.
