Miller / Packan Documentary Film Fund

Miller / Packan Documentary Film Fund

The Rogovy Foundation is proud to announce an increase in its annual Miller / Packan Film Funding. Awarded bi-annually, the Fund awards grants totaling $200,000 to between six and twelve documentary film projects per year. The next Winter open call ends November 15th, and the Summer open call ends June 15th.

Already providing $150,000 annually in grants for the past two years, the Foundation is committing an additional $50,000 per year to further impact funding opportunities for documentary filmmakers.

The Foundation funds projects that are transformational, with enlightening narratives and inspiring characters. It supports documentary film as an instrument for change, delivering greater knowledge, compassion and awareness.

The Miller / Packan Film Fund provides grants to feature-length non-fiction projects that address social issues and inspire others. The Fund supports filmmaking in advanced development (up to $10,000), production and post-production stages (up to $25,000).

The fund seeks projects that open our eyes through a strong premise, critical thinking, detailed analysis and competing views.
Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, with Award winners announced in January and June. Applications for the Winter Awards must be received by November 15th.

You always need a Film Business Plan to get funding from investors.

“We’ve been inspired by the breadth and quality of the documentary films submitted for funding,” says Hugh Rogovy, Foundation Founder. “We’re very pleased to announce this increase in our grant support of documentary films.”
