Humanities Montana awards Film and Digital Media Grants of up to $10,000. These grants are intended to provide multi-year or one-time funding for major, humanities-focused projects in film, video, television, and web-based or other digital media. Major projects are those that require multiple stages of research and development, production, and post-production. They generally require a script and a year or more to complete.
Organizations may apply for project funding at three different production stages: research and script development; principal photography, source material acquisition, and rights clearance; and project completion and post-production. Applicants may elect to apply for funds at each stage sequentially or for one-time funding at any of the stages. At each stage, applicants may receive between $8,000 to $10,000. No one project can receive more than $28,000 in total Film and Digital Media Grants.
Applications are accepted year-round and are reviewed once a year following the August 20th deadline.
Humanities Montana encourages organizations to submit proposals for projects that would stimulate statewide dialogue on humanities topics, foster discussion between humanities scholars and the public, strengthen cooperative relationships among communities and cultural organizations (museums, libraries, schools, tribal organizations, etc.), and enrich civic discourse among the state’s diverse cultures and across its geographical distances.
Upcoming Deadline: AUGUST 20, 2017
