Narrative/fiction short film projects (animation or live action) will not be accepted in this cycle. Instead, a separate grant cycle will be opening later this summer for Narrative films only. As a review committee, we found that reviewing Narrative shorts alongside documentary shorts and features was too complex a process and we have decided to create a separate program from documentary consideration. More information will be released later this year on the new program.
