Sundance Institute Applications Open for Sandbox Fund

Sundance Institute Applications Open for Sandbox Fund

The Sandbox Fund offers grants, engagement events, and other opportunities for independent artists seeking to explore the intrinsic link between science and culture through innovative storytelling. The program is administered by the Sundance Institute Documentary Fund, in collaboration with Sandbox Films.


U.S. and international nonfiction projects are eligible, with a focus on feature-length documentary projects.


Grants are offered to independent artists who are working at the intersection of science and nonfiction storytelling. The partnership identifies and supports nonfiction projects that inspire a deeper interest in science, especially among those who don’t think of themselves as science enthusiasts.

The fund offers support to projects at all stages of development, production, and post-production. Average grant sizes are as follows:

  • Development (up to $25,000)

  • Production (up to $50,000)

  • Post-Production (up to $50,000)

    Creative Considerations
    Selection criteria for the Sandbox Fund will emphasize creative narrative techniques and projects that highlight diversity in science, specifically those that feature characters, topics, or disciplines that broaden and redefine what it means to be a scientist or to do science.
