Grant Writing Technical Workshop: Firelight Media's Spark Fund
About the Event
Co-presented with Black Public Media (BPM) and Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB), please join us and Firelight Media on Monday, December 6 at 12pm ET for a technical workshop about applying for the Spark Fund, which offers support to established independent documentary filmmakers who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color (BIPOC).
The Spark Fund will provide 36 stipends of $50,000 to selected filmmakers over the period of one year, for their use in alleviating financial hardship and work disruptions endured from the COVID-19 pandemic. Selected filmmakers must be working on a humanities-themed project. The Spark Fund is particularly interested in supporting filmmakers whose projects are aligned with the NEH’s “A More Perfect Union” initiative.
Welcome Remarks – Marcia Smith, President, Firelight Media
Application Instructions Overview – Michon Boston, Spark Fund program manager
Attendee Q&A (via Webinar Chat) – Moderated by Spark Fund coordinator Antonia Thornton
