Fund Your Project with the IDA’s Massive List of Grants

The International Documentary Association supports filmmakers, and it can help you get the financing you need to bring your projects to life.

The International Documentary Association (IDA) hosts an impressive list of grants and funding opportunities for independent filmmakers and documentarians.

With close to 150 funding programs, the list includes grants and awards ranging from $250 to $500,000 (most awards fall in the $10,000 to $25,000 range). The IDA also offers a longstanding fiscal sponsorship program, which allows filmmakers to apply for grants that would otherwise require a partnership with a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
