The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) is accepting applications for the 2021 JDC Archives Documentary Film Grant.
Through the program, the JDC Archives will select one documentary film to receive a grant of $8,000 (with an additional $2,000 available for high-resolution reproduction and licensing fees for material from the JDC Archives).
Eligible films should focus on twentieth-century Jewish history, humanitarian assistance, and/or a related topic. Topics can include issues, events, and personalities related to overseas Jewish communities during the last century.
Films that utilize the JDC archival collections (http://archives.jdc.org) will receive greater consideration. Applicants must have a proven track record as a filmmaker. The grant is intended to help underwrite post-production, distribution, and/or JDC Archives licensing costs for a film currently in production or in post-production.
Applications are due March 16, 2021.
To apply and for further information, see the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee.
