Movies that Matter Support Programme

Institution: Movies that Matter


To promote the screenings of human rights cinema worldwide, Movies that Matter Support Programme offers modest small grants to human rights film events in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Eastern Europe, especially in countries with limited resources and freedom of press. These events can take various forms, such as human rights film festivals, LGBT festivals, mobile cinema projects, school screenings, grassroots distribution and film outreach projects.

Funding available

In order to provide support that best matches the needs of our partners, Movies that Matter is in the process of adjusting its grant structure. Instead of providing one general type of grant, the Support Programme is launching two types of grants:
- start-up grants - with tailored advice and a grant of up to EUR 7,500, for new, innovative projects and starting festivals
- impact grants - for more established festivals that aim to increase their effectiveness and impact, with a grant amount of up to EUR 10,000
