Catapult Film Fund Summer 2014 Grant Application Round Now Open

Summer 2014 Grant Application Round Now Open

The Catapult Summer 2014 funding round opens today, July 14. We will be accepting applications through August 25, 2014. Decisions are expected to be announced by December. Please check the Catapult website for information on how to apply and for the online application. Feel free to spread the word and contact us if you have any questions.


Catapult Film Fund provides development funding to documentary filmmakers who have a compelling story story to tell, have secured access to their story and are ready to create a piece for fundraising purposes. Catapult has two application rounds per year and provides individual grants of up to $20,000.

Catapult gives early support in order to propel projects forward that hold the promise of a unique story that should be told in film. We support powerful and artful storytelling across a broad spectrum of issues and perspectives.

Catapult grants allow filmmakers to take crucial next steps in the development of their films, such as enabling a first shoot and editing pieces for production fundraising. In addition to the initial development grant, recipients have access to an informal mentorship program with Catapult’s co-founders, Bonni Cohen and Lisa Kleiner Chanoff, in areas including story development, production process, fundraising and distribution strategy.
