Hot Docs Cross Currents Documentary Fund

Institution: Hot Docs


The Cross Currents Fund is an international production fund that fosters storytelling from within communities whose perspectives have been historically underrepresented or marginalized.

Empowering voices in the documentary space that have previously not been heard, the Fund focuses on emerging filmmakers who have a connection to or shared experience with their subject, as well as sharing stories with audiences within and outside that featured community.

Funding available

The Fund annual awards a $10,000 grant to one applicant.
