Anna Borges do Sacramento

Sundance Institute’s Documentary Film Program (DFP) has selected 20 non-fiction films covering subjects ranging from housing inequality to feminist history for Sundance Institute Documentary Fund Grants.

Eight out of the ten US films granted are directed by at least one BIPOC director. Globally, half the projects have international roots in regions that the DFP prioritises because freedom of expression is at risk, or due to local infrastructures that lack adequate support mechanisms for independent film.

The fund offers non-recoupable support for non-fiction projects that elevate and advance cultural dialogue and break new ground in creativity and innovation from filmmakers with a distinct voice and vision, and a meaningful connection to the work they create.

Some $600,000 in unrestricted grants has been provided to the projects in various stages of production and distribution, including eight in development, eight in production, three in post-production, and one in post-production and impact.
