The IDA Enterprise Documentary Fund supports independent, long-form filmmakers producing journalistic films in the public interest. In addition to providing production and development grants, its mission is to make the knowledge, tools and resources traditionally afforded to journalists available to filmmakers. The Advisory Committee provides expert guidance and input on the administration of the fund and its related programs.
Filmmaker Advisory Committee
The Enterprise Documentary Fund was established with significant input from documentary filmmakers. The Filmmaker Advisory Committee was convened to ensure that the interests and perspectives of filmmakers continue to be represented in the activities of the fund. Its members do not participate in the grantee selection process in any way, nor do they participate in Advisory Committee meetings. Filmmaker advisors remain eligible to apply to all IDA funds.
