The Organizationís California Documentary Project, a competitive grants program, supports documentary film, radio, and new media productions designed to enhance an understanding of California and its cultures, peoples, and histories. Projects should use the humanities to provide context, depth, and perspective, and be suitable for California and national audiences through public and educational screenings and presentations, broadcast, distribution, and/or online. The grants support projects at the research and development, production, and public engagement stages. Research and development grants of up to $10,000 are awarded to strengthen the humanities content and approach of documentary media productions in their earliest stages. Projects must actively involve at least three humanities advisors who help frame and contextualize subject matter throughout the research and development phase. Production grants of up to $50,000 are awarded to strengthen the humanities content and approach of documentary media productions and help propel projects toward completions. Projects must be in the production stage, have a work in progress, and actively involve at least two humanities advisors in the production process. Grant requests must be matched by at least a 1:1 amount of cash or in-kind contributions from non-federal sources. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
