We recently announced our new program areas and our commitment to building institutions and networks. But we’re not quite ready to start making grants in these areas. New funding will begin when our updated strategies are in place at the start of 2016.
For now, therefore, we are not accepting proposals for new funding. When the inquiry process reopens in January 2016, we will announce it on our website. You can also sign up to receive updates via e-mail.

Note: During this time of transition, the inquiry processes for JustFilms grants and the Ford Foundation Fellowships Program remain open.
