What types of film and radio projects are eligible for a California Documentary Project grant?
The Council seeks original film and radio projects that document the California experience and explore issues of significance to Californians. Film and radio projects must be solidly based in the humanities and be suitable for California and national audiences. While there is no restriction on subject matter, projects will be evaluated on their relevance to California and national audiences. Productions of any documentary style are eligible to apply, however historical projects should make a clear case for their subjects’ relevance to contemporary audiences. Since 2003, CDP has supported a broad range of projects covering diverse subject matter in multiple styles. Please see www.calhum.org for a list of previously supported CDP film and radio projects.
