Sundance Chooses 22 Projects for Documentary Support

Article excerpt

Sundance Institute today announced the 22 Documentary Film Program grant recipients for autumn 2010.

Selected feature-length documentaries were chosen from nearly 450 projects from 80 countries. Each will receive $550,000 in support.

Two of the 22 projects listed below are to receive a grant from the Sundance | Cinereach Project at Sundance Institute, part of a $1.5m three-year grant funded by Cinereach. A portion of the grant is for emergency or discretionary grants and support for risk-taking documentaries on pressing global issues, as well as support.

In addition to financial assistance, all of the film-makers awarded grants are eligible for a range of year-round creative support services from Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, including creative labs and fellows programmes, work-in-progress screenings, and documentary activity at the annual Sundance Creative Producing Summit and Sundance Film Festival.
