Paul Robeson Fund to Provide Support for Social Issue Film, Video, and Radio Projects

Deadline: May 15, 2003

A program of the Funding Exchange (, the Paul Robeson Fund supports media activism and grassroots organizing by funding the pre-production and distribution of social issue film and video projects and the production and distribution of radio projects by local, state, national, or international organizations and individual media producers.

The Fund solicits projects of all genres that address critical social and political issues, combine intellectual clarity with creative use of the medium, and demonstrate understanding of how the production will be used for progressive social-change organizing. The maximum grant award is $20,000; most grants range between $5,000 and $15,000.

The Fund makes grants to radio projects in all production stages and to film and video projects in the pre-production or distribution stages only. The Fund does not support production or postproduction costs for film and video projects. Applicants may submit only one project for consideration and may not be listed as producer or director on any other project submitted to the Fund during that funding cycle.

Applications are accepted only between April 15 and May 15. See the Funding Exchange Web site to download complete program guidelines and/or an application form.
