National Geographic All Roads Film Project Offers Seed Grants for Indigenous Storytellers.
The All Roads Film Project is a National Geographic initiative dedicated to helping indigenous and underrepresented minority-culture storytellers around the world showcase their works and promote greater knowledge, dialogue, and understanding with a broader, global audience.
All Roads includes a film festival, photography program, and seed-grant program.
The seed-grant program is open to indigenous and underrepresented minority-culture filmmakers as well as filmmakers who can demonstrate that they have been designated by indigenous or minority communities to tell their story.
Grants funds should be used toward the development and production of a feature film, long documentary, short documentary, shorts, animation, or music video.
The program awards grants ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 to up to sixteen film projects annually.
Funding may be used for equipment, travel for field research, editing time, etc.
