APPLY: Pitch Your Best Nonfiction Idea for 2013 AbelCine Documentary Grant


Deadline: extended to August 27

“Do you have an idea for a compelling documentary project? The 2013 AbelCine Documentary Grant was established to help get your story told. We’re asking you to create a 2-5 minute video pitch and upload it to Vimeo – you’ll have the chance to win one of three equipment usage grants worth a combined total of $100,000.

But it’s not just us you’re pitching to – it’s your fellow filmmakers as well. Once all the Vimeo submissions are in, 10 finalists will be chosen based on the number of “Likes” from the Vimeo community. A select panel of judges, comprised of AbelCine & industry experts, as well as filmmakers Ellen Kuras, ASC, Mark Benjamin, and Peter Schnall, will review the finalists’ pitches and determine the three grant recipients.”
