National Geographic All Roads Film Project Offers Seed Grants for Indigenous Filmmakers

Deadline: Quarterly

The All Roads Film Project is a National Geographic ( http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ ) initiative created to provide an international platform for indigenous and under-represented minority-culture artists to share their cultures, stories, and perspectives through the power of film and photography.

All Roads includes a film festival, photography program, and seed grant program. The All Roads Seed Grant Program funds film projects by and about indigenous and underrepresented minority-culture filmmakers from all reaches of the globe. The program seeks filmmakers who bring their lives and communities to light through first-person story telling. The grant program is open to indigenous and under- represented 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 range up to a maximum of $10,000 each.

Submission deadlines are quarterly on the 15th of each March, June, September, and December. Visit the program's Web site for complete guidelines and application procedures.
