CAAM is now accepting applications for our Documentary Fund and Documentaries for Social Change Fund.

With support from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), CAAM provides production funding to independent producers who make engaging Asian American works for public television through CAAM’s Documentary Fund. Documentaries are eligible for production or post-production funding and must be intended for public television broadcast. Awards typically range between $10,000 and $50,000.

The CAAM Documentaries for Social Change Fund, supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, offers grants for social issue documentary films that highlight Asian American narratives. This Fund will provide much needed resources to projects for research and development and in early production. Awards of up to $15,000 will be available to selected projects.
