In supporting such work, the fund seeks to encourage the diverse exchange of ideas crucial to developing an open society, raise public consciousness about human rights abuses and restrictions of civil liberties, and foster an ongoing dialogue about these issues.
The fund considers proposals in two categories:
Applications should generally include at least twenty minutes of continuously edited material.
Proposals are evaluated on artful storytelling, stylistic innovation, subject relevance, and potential for social engagement.
The fund will only consider projects that range in length from full broadcast hour to long format feature.
Application Deadline: Annually.
