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 ( To learn more about these areas,  visit:

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 and click "Grant Guidelines."
