The Pulse Doc Society Genesis Fund is an international film fund supporting the inception of long form feature documentaries driven by imaginative and innovative storytelling. The more imaginative your approach, the harder it can be to persuade funders to take a risk without a proof of concept. We’ve partnered with Pulse Films to give that crucial first commitment to help filmmakers progress bold non-fiction ideas.
You don’t need to be already working with either Pulse Films or Doc Society and you don’t need to work with either of us afterwards - filmmakers will retain all their rights and options.
"Receiving the Genesis Fund marks a huge milestone in my emerging career as a filmmaker. Above all else it lets me know that BRITDOC and Pulse are very serious about supporting directors who are not afraid to take risks."
