Jonathan Logan Family Foundation Grants $600,000 to International Documentary Association

December 9, 2017 (Los Angeles, CA) — The Jonathan Logan Family Foundation announced a new investment in documentary film with a $600,000 grant over two years to support the International Documentary Association (IDA). 

The grant will support IDA’s Enterprise Documentary Fund, which funds feature-length projects that integrate journalistic practice into the filmmaking process, and Getting Real ‘18, IDA’s biennial filmmaker-to-filmmaker conference, taking place September 25-27, 2018 in Los Angeles. 

As part of this initiative, the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation will also provide four grants of $25,000 each to emerging women filmmakers of color. 

“IDA’s commitment to funding and educating ambitious nonfiction storytellers makes them an ideal partner for our social justice work,” says Jonathan Logan of the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation. “We believe that it is our responsibility to empower those whose voices have traditionally been stifled and whose knowledge, experience, and challenges have not been fully acknowledged."

“We are tremendously grateful for this support,” says Simon Kilmurry, IDA’s Executive Director. “I am particularly excited about the four emerging filmmaker grants, which will boost our commitment to fostering new talent and telling underrepresented stories.”

The Jonathan Logan Family Foundation supports organizations that advance social justice by promoting world-changing work in investigative journalism, the arts, the environment, education, equity and inclusion, and documentary film.
