Documentary Film Fund Awards
Learn more about our Documentary Film Fund, a grant program supporting new documentary film projects in the Northwest.
In 2012 we awarded $20,000 in cash grants through this program, plus a package of artist services valued at $40,000 in-kind. 2012 winners include the film Sweetheart Deal by Seattle directors Elisa Haradon and Gabriel Miller, and the film project Open Road, by Portland director Alain LeTourneau.
