What: This grant funds first time documentary makers for travel and accommodations at the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, April 14-17, 2011. For four days, grant recipients will be given access to films, participate in master classes and be mentored by experienced filmmakers. TWO filmmakers will be chosen for the grant in its fourth year.
Deadline: Applications must be RECEIVED BY Friday, February 4, 2011. Applicants will be notified by email in early March.
About the Grant: Garrett Scott made a distinctive mark in documentary during his short career. Without any formal training in film, he directed Cul De Sac: A Suburban War Story, examining the case of a methamphetamine addict who stole a tank from an armory and went on a rampage through the San Diego suburbs. The film prompted Filmmaker Magazine to cite Scott as one of 25 New Faces of Independent Film. He went on to make Occupation: Dreamland, co-directed with Ian Olds, about U.S. soldiers in Falluja, Iraq. It won prizes at Full Frame and the Independent Spirit Awards. Both films were broadcast by the Sundance Channel. In 2006, Scott died of a heart attack at age 37.
Scott’s work examined how the forces of state power and economics impact individuals. Stylistically, his films broke convention, giving audiences new perspectives on familiar milieus like suburbia or war torn Iraq. He was a beloved member of film communities in San Francisco and New York City and several points in between.
His friends, family and colleagues established this development grant to help other emerging filmmakers reach their potential. The grants selection committee looks especially for filmmakers who somehow fulfill Scott’s example, by bringing a unique vision to the content and style of contemporary documentary making.
The 2010 Garrett Scott Documentary Development Grant was awarded to Mike Brown for 25 to Life and April Hayes and Katia Maguire for Jessica Gonzales vs. The United States of America. Previous grant recipients include Robin Hessman (My Perestroika), Cameron Yates (The Canal Street Madam), Rebecca Richman Cohen (War Don Don), Nathan Fisher (The Unreturned), and Mai Iskander (Garbage Dreams), among others.
Past winners have gone on to receive significant recognition, screening their finished works at Full Frame and other prestigious festivals including Sundance, IDFA, SXSW, and Silverdocs. In addition, they have won numerous awards and accolades, including the 2010 Full Frame CDS Filmmaker Award, which was presented to Hessman’s My Perestroika.
Order Criteria: Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or green card holder and live in the continental United States; any age 18 or older. By “first time filmmaker,” we mean someone who is in the early stage of their documentary career and has not yet received significant recognition (such as major festival play or broadcast). All applicants should anticipate finishing their first project by March 2012. You still qualify as a “first time filmmaker” if you’ve made shorts or student projects, worked professionally as a crew member on other people’s films, or if you’ve recently completed a documentary that hasn’t been released yet. The grant is open to students and non-students alike.
