Cinearch Deadline: December 1

Cinereach, a US non-profit production company and foundation, is still accepting applications for its Winter 2011 Grant Cycle. Fiction and nonfiction films can apply until December 1, 2010.


Cinereach supports feature-length nonfiction and fiction films that are at the intersection of engaging storytelling, visual artistry, and vital subject matter. Grantees’ films often possess an independent spirit, depict underrepresented perspectives, and resonate across international boundaries. They favor story over message, character over agenda, and complexity over duality.

Grant amounts can range from $5,000 – $50,000 per project and can be awarded to support any stage of production, including research and development, production and post-production.

Visit Cinereach’s How to Apply page to learn about our online application center, priorities & guidelines, FAQ and more. In preparation for applying, we also encourage you to peruse past Cinereach grant recipients, including the recently announced Summer 2010 grantees.

Letters of inquiry must be submitted by 11:59pm (EST) on December 1, 2010.

Cinereach strongly encourages applicants to submit sample work with letters of inquiry. All sample work mailed or shipped to Cinereach must be postmarked by December 1, 2010.
