Mountainfilm is committed to supporting documentary filmmakers in telling stories that support our mission to use the power of film, art and ideas to inspire audiences to create a better world. We seek non-fiction stories celebrating adventure, activism, social justice, culture, environment and indomitable spirit.
Mountainfilm will be awarding a total of $30,000 to be dispersed in grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. This year’s Commitment Grants will only be open to Mountainfilm alumni whose films have screened at the festival.
The Commitment Grant is focused on supporting documentary filmmakers in production or post-production stages. Mountainfilm promotes and encourages diversity behind the camera. We welcome applicants from any country.
If you are an early career filmmaker, please consider applying for our Emerging Filmmaker Fellowship.
Submissions will be open from July 1–31, 2020. Applications must be completed in full, including a video sample or trailer of your current project (no longer than 10 minutes). Incomplete or late applications will not be accepted. Notifications will be sent in mid-September.
