IP launching New Development Fund for Features & Series

November 13, 2018

Impact Partners is launching a seven-figure development fund that will support both documentary features and series, or early projects that could be either. This fund will support the development of 4-8 non-fiction projects a year, with a range of $10,000-$100,000 per project. 

The fund will begin accepting applications on a rolling basis on December 1, 2018. Filmmakers can apply to the fund for a variety of reasons, including development shoots, cutting a trailer or reel, conducting archival research, casting characters or many other reasons related to development.

Development is the most under-funded area in documentary filmmaking. We are making a commitment to funding the early stages of non-fiction series and films in order to provide financial and strategic support to filmmakers at this crucial early stage in the process.

Application instructions will be made available on our SUBMISSIONS page soon.
