The Sundance Institute and TED now have an open call for proposals for their second collaboration, which will jointly award $125,000 for a short documentary film project about the work of the 2014 TED Prize winner -- Charmain Gooch, co-founder and director of Global Witness. 

The Institute’s Documentary Film Program is accepting proposals through May 1, 2014 on Sundance's website. They will oversee the selection process in collaboration with TED.

Here are the guidelines for what the winning proposal must achieve: 

It should highlight the work of the TED Prize winner over the course of their first 12 months after receiving the award; be suitable for creating appreciation and deeper understanding of the TED Prize winner’s work; be independently produced, with creative control held by the producing/directing team; display directorial vision/aesthetic; and have the potential for theatrical release.

Deliverables should include a short cinematic film of 25-40 minutes in length, a multi-platform release strategy, a trailer of under 90 seconds, and a 3-5-minute version of the film. Film projects must be completed within 18 months of the announcement of the award. Clips will be screened at the 2015 TED Conference in Vancouver, Canada.

The winning proposal will be announced in June 2014. Check out more information about Charmain Gooch, winner of the annual TED Prize, at TED's website.
