Focus Grant Topics
The Documentary Focus Grants are designed to stimulate discussion and raise awareness of topical issues that we feel support The Rogovy Foundation Ideals and Values. Below are several topic ideas that we wish to support with a $10,000-$15,000 development funding grant. Grants will be awarded to the filmmaker we select as best suited to further the project goal. We seek a balanced approach to thoughtful and fact-based content. We avoid agenda-based or preaching to the choir arguments. Once a grant has been awarded for a particular topic, we will add it to our list of grantees. Winning submissions will be invited to apply for further funding (up to $25,000) during the bi-annual Miller / Packan Documentary Open Calls. Winners of the Focus Grant retain all rights to the film project.
