Firelight Media Launches their Spark Fund to support BIPOC filmmakers, Apply by December 29!

Our friends at Firelight Media have just launched the application to their Spark Fund, a funding opportunity underwritten by the NEH to support established, BIPOC documentary filmmakers!

Firelight Media’s Spark Fund offers support to established independent documentary filmmakers who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color, and whose work on humanities-themed projects was disrupted by the COVID-19 public health emergency. This one-time opportunity, which is underwritten by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ #SHARP initiative, will provide 36 stipends of $50,000 to selected filmmakers over the period of one year. The deadline is December 29, 2021.


Firelight will be hosting a workshop for applicants this Monday, November 8 at 12pm ET to review application requirements and instructions in detail.  RSVP here!
