American Documentary: Artist Emergency Fund
American Documentary (AmDoc) welcomes applications from nonfiction mediamakers who are facing financial emergencies due to unforeseen personal calamities such as health issues, eviction, or disasters. These one-time grants are a direct response to concerns about low salaries and overall sustainability within the documentary field, especially among emerging and underrepresented mediamakers. To date, this is the first fund of its kind dedicated to supporting mediamakers working in nonfiction.
