Supporting interactive, short or feature-length doc projects made by filmmakers from, and telling the stories of, underrepresented and marginalized communities from around the world. The CrossCurrents Fund is an international fund for filmmakers who are directly in or have a deep connection to the underrepresnted and marginalized community.
You always need a Film Business Plan to get funding from investors.
The Fund was established in 2013 by the R&M Lang Foundation, which provides short/interactive project support. Feature-length project support is underwritten by the Panicaro Foundation.
The Fund’s mandate is to help develop understanding and appreciation of unheard voices by encouraging projects that aim to reach not only members within the community, but also expanded audiences.
Project funding support will include $10,000 CAD for one short or interactive film; and up to $30,000 CAD for up to three feature films.
Feature films for the purpose of this fund may include TV length versions with running times of 41 minutes or longer.
