The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation is currently accepting proposals for documentary film and transmedia projects. Filmmakers interested in applying have until tomorrow, September 7 to submit. So get to it!

The program seeks to fund documentary projects that address the significant social challenges of our time or explore important but under-reported topics.  Domestic and international topics are welcome, and preference will be given to projects that align with one of MacArthur’s grant making areas (http://www.macfound.org/info-grantseekers/what-we-fund/). To learn more about these areas,  visit: http://macfound.org.

Support will be provided for production and post-production activities, and to experienced filmmakers based in the U.S. with track records of completing feature-length films that have been broadcast nationally and internationally. The typical grant range is between $50,000 and $200,000. For more information and to apply, visit http://macfound.org/programs/media/ and click "Grant Guidelines."

Good luck!
