Call for Submissions: California Documentary Project Grants

The California Documentary Project (CDP) is a competitive grant program of the California Council for the Humanities.

Guidelines are now available at www.calhum.org

Grants are offered in the following categories:
Production - Film and radio up to $50,000. New media up to $20,000.
Research & Development - Film, radio and new media up to $7,000
