The Ford Foundation is delighted for the 19 JustFilms-supported documentaries and film projects nominated both for the 35th Annual News and Documentary Emmys and the 66th Annual Primetime Emmys.

Cara Mertes, director of JustFilms, captures it best: “The 2014 nominations are a testament to the range and excellence in artistry of film and transmedia content being created currently around important and often overlooked issues and events. JustFilms is honored to have been part of the extended support network for these filmmakers and for the individuals and communities whose stories have been told, both through direct granting as well as through support of organizations that work on behalf of these creative and courageous film and transmedia makers.”
