Funding: The Fledgling Fund

The Fledgling Fund‘s Fall funding cycle opens today, with the initial letter of inquiry due October 1.

With an annual funding budget of $1.5 million, the Fledgling Fund is one of very few funders committed to helping filmmakers working towards social change, often helping with resources to get a film completed, funding for outreach efforts, and support for non-profits related to the issues tackled by the film. Key areas of support include creative media dealing with environmental justice; girls’ empowerment and women’s leadership; health; mental health, disability, and homelessness; migration and immigration; systemic poverty; the US justice system; and war and its aftermath.

Filmmakers should review their website for more information about the kinds of projects that they support, but these include, among many others, films like GASLAND, TROUBLE THE WATER, KING CORN, FREEDOM RIDERS, BUDRUS, NO IMPACT MAN, THE END OF THE LINE, THE RECRUITER, THE GREATEST SILENCE, THE END OF AMERICA, GHOSTS OF ABU GHRAIB, and THE DEVIL CAME ON HORSEBACK.
