Apply to IF/THEN Shorts American Midwest Pitch by January 20th!

Our friends over at Tribeca Film Institute and Cleveland International Film Festival reached out to us looking for storytellers from the American Mid-West to pitch their short documentaries (10-20 mins) during the 2020 Cleveland International Film Festival.

Films should be concerning the American Midwest that explore a range of socially, politically and culturally relevant topics. Participants must be from any of the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Of six finalists, one project will receive up to $25,000 USD in funding and will have the opportunity to participate in Tribeca Film Institute’s IF/Then Shorts Documentary Program (developed with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation) that provides year-round mentorship and career development opportunities
