Producers and filmmakers from developing countries can apply.
The IDFA Bertha Fund is looking for new creative documentary projects from developing countries. The fund supports documentary filmmakers (and festivals) with financial contributions to complete their projects.
The four categories are project development, production, post-production and documentary festivals (to be confirmed in February). Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico are eligible only for the project development category.
Upon selection, the fund works with the filmmakers to determine which form of assistance and coaching would be most suitable to their project. The support is intended to enhance the script, production, editing or access to the international market.
Grants are in the range of EUR5,000 (US$6,795) – EUR17,500 (US$23,785), depending on the category.
The deadline is Feb. 1.
