Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation and Puma.Creative – part of PUMA’s CSR division PUMAVision – have announced the new PUMA.Creative Catalyst and Creative Mobility Awards. These initiatives will provide financial support, creative counsel and industry recognition to international documentary filmmakers whose creative storytelling highlights social justice, peace or environmental issues.
PUMA.Creative Catalyst Awards, a new international documentary development fund, offers 40 awards annually of up to 5,000 euros each. This is a rapid response fund, providing strategic and catalytic resources in the early stages of documentary projects, to shoot and edit a film trailer that can demonstrate and accelerate the potential of the filmmakers’ vision. The fund is open to filmmakers of any nationality and grants will be awarded on a quarterly basis.
The PUMA.Creative Mobility Awards are dedicated documentary film grants designed to provide financial support to directors for travel costs at any stage of a documentary’s production or release
