Each year the MacArthur Foundation's Media Program accepts funding applications through an Open Call process. The program supports the production of documentary films that illuminate human stories within complex social issues. These issues are often critical to our lives, but under-reported in other media. The program especially looks to fund projects designed to reach a broad audience, particularly in the U.S., through public television broadcast, via community and policymaker screenings, and online.
Grants are made to production companies and non-profit organizations that are based in the U.S. The typical grant amount is between $50,000 and $200,000. Applications are accepted between July 15 - July 31, 2013.
