Apply for Funding

Fledgling’s Special Fund for Rapid Story Deployment provides grants ranging from $2,500-$10,000 to support short non-fiction films and/or other visual stories that can be completed and distributed quickly. Priority will be given to projects that have a plan to distribute the work in ways that deepen the debate around our most critical social issues. We are open to funding at all stages (production, post-production, distribution and outreach) but will give priority to projects and that are well positioned to make an impact quickly.

Fledgling has an open rolling application process for grants to support outreach and engagement for social issue documentary film projects that have the potential to inspire positive social change around issues that affect the most vulnerable.

You can submit an application online at any time and will be asked to include a description of the project, its social change goals and your plans for moving the project forward. Typically, film projects have at least a rough cut. We review proposals on a rolling basis and you will be notified of our decision within three months.
