PUMA Creative Catalyst Award
Financial support for the development of documentary films
Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation + PUMA.Creative
There are 40 awards available annually of up to 5,000 Euros each, given through quarterly open calls. The awards are open to emerging and established filmmakers working anywhere in the world.
We welcome one-off, creative documentary ideas of any length and subject, in any style and form, but we are particularly keen on ideas that address creative, social justice, peace or environmental issues globally.
The Fund supports:
- Ideas with no previous footage
- Trailer research and production
- Trailer post-production
- Films of any lengths and subjects
In the previous call, 9 documentary projects received support, with the tenth awardee to be announced at the Durban International Film Festival in South Africa in July 2011. Among the awarded projects coming in from across the world (e.g., USA, Surinam, India, Kenya, Italy) was also Heralds from the Big World by Russian filmmaker Tatyana Soboleva.
