Research Grant

The Catapult Research Grant is the newest expansion of Catapult Film Fund’s on going commitment to support nonfiction films and filmmakers. The new program seeks provides a $10,000 grant plus six months of mentorship and professional development to five filmmakers in the early conception and research phase of developing a new film idea.

Too often filmmakers are expected to self-fund research and development on new projects. This can be a long and costly process. By offering research funding, the Catapult Research Grant can help sustain filmmakers during this early period while also reducing barriers to entry for a diverse slate of voices. By launching the Catapult Research Grant we hope to help contribute to filmmaker sustainability and diversity in the field.
