Funding Exchange Invites Proposals for Paul Robeson Fund for Independent Media
Deadline: May 15, 2006

Named to honor singer, actor, and civil rights activist Paul Robeson, the Funding Exchange’s (<a href=""></a>) Paul Robeson Fund for Independent Media supports media activism and grassroots organizing by funding the pre-production and distribution of social issue film and video projects, as well as the production and distribution of radio projects made by local, state, national, or international organizations and individual media producers.

The fund solicits projects in 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 justice organizing.

The Robeson 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 post-production costs for film and video projects.

The maximum grant award is $20,000, and most grants will range between $5,000 and $15,000.

See the Funding Exchange Web site for complete program guidelines and application criteria and instructions.
