Inspirit’s Doc Impact Fund supports social issue documentary film outreach and engagement campaigns that aim to build inclusion and pluralism in Canada and address issues of racial, ethnic or religious discrimination.
This year Inspirit is supporting four Canadian documentary film campaigns that aim to raise awareness about pressing issues related to ethnic, racial or religious discrimination in Canada, build understanding of underrepresented perspectives and catalyze action to build inclusion.
This program is open to independent Canadian filmmakers and producers who have a recently completed film (short, feature or virtual reality/interactive) and aim to leverage their film to achieve a social change goal related to reconciliation, Islamophobia or other forms of discrimination based on race, religion or ethnicity.
Special consideration will be given to Indigenous or Muslim-led projects that seek to advance reconciliation or address Islamophobia in Canada. Selected projects will be awarded $25K.
Deadline for applications is June 25, 2018.
