The Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund
About the Fund
Made possible by the New York Community Trust, the Pare Lorentz Documentary Fund supports feature-length documentary films that reflect the spirit and nature of Pare Lorentz's work, exhibiting objective research, artful storytelling, strong visual style, high production values, artistic writing, and outstanding music composition, as well as skillful direction, camerawork and editing.
The Fund provides production and post-production grants to be used in the creation of original, independent documentary films that illuminate issues in the United States. Each year the fund will focus on select issue areas that were hallmarks of Pare Lorentz's films.
