Foundation / Corporation
Grants of up to $50,000 to Canada individual producers and directors to aid in the production of short form documentary projects. Funding will go to original and creative proposals that address a wide range of subjects such as, but not limited to, politics, history, culture, science, arts, and social issues. Particular interest will go to films which are full of insight; films which illuminate the human condition, with all its failings and triumphs; and films which are memorable and entertaining.
Proposals will be judged based on variables such as the complexity of the outline, production techniques, and rights acquisition. Applicants are invited from all levels of experience in the production community. Applicants with limited experience in documentary production, including research, video story-telling, cinematography, editing, etc. are encouraged to recruit the services of experienced people.
Recognizing the dramatic improvements in production technology, the funding source will encourage and welcome proposals from applicants with smaller production teams and proven multi-tasking abilities. It is expected that the composition of the production team will be reflected in the proposed budget.
The funding source encourages applicants to find stories from their own regions so that BravoFACTUAL shorts reflect the diversity and richness of cultures and personalities in Canada. They may deal with issues of national or local interest.
Filmmakers will be invited to meet with BravoFACTUAL consultants who will be available at several stages during the process of making their documentary. The award is issued in several installments based upon a schedule of production bench marks to make sure the production is consistent with the approved project.
