2018 Latino Public Broadcasting Funding Cycle – Call for Proposals

Deadline: Monday, June 4, 2018 at 5PM PST

Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) wants to hear your stories! The 2018 LPB Funding Cycle is now accepting applications for two funding initiatives, the Current Issues Fund (CIF) and the Public Media Content Fund (PMCF).

The newly launched Current Issues Fund provides production and post-production funding to documentary films from the Latino American perspective (60 or 90 minutes only) that explore contemporary civic and social justice issues, incorporate a journalistic approach into the filmmaking process and have resonance for a U.S. national audience. LPB is looking for stories that explore timely issues, demonstrate artistic storytelling and have potential to engage communities in civic discourse beyond the broadcast. Funding for CIF ranges from $40,000 to $100,000.  A New Solicitation Supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The Public Media Content Fund (PMCF) provides funding for documentaries, limited series or short digital video programs for online distribution (no longer than 20 minutes) that are appropriate for public television and/or one of its platforms. PMCF accepts project submissions in the genre of the arts, history, science, biography, personal storytelling, cultural documentary, mixed genre and narrative. Funding for PMCF ranges from $10,000 to $100,000.
