Catapult Film Fund provides development funding to documentary filmmakers who have a compelling story story to tell, have secured access to their story and are ready to create a piece for fundraising purposes. Catapult has two application rounds per year and provides individual grants of up to $20,000.
Catapult gives early support in order to propel projects forward that hold the promise of a unique story that should be told in film. We support powerful and artful storytelling across a broad spectrum of issues and perspectives.
Catapult grants allow filmmakers to take crucial next steps in the development of their films, such as enabling a first shoot and editing pieces for production fundraising. In addition to the initial development grant, recipients have access to an informal mentorship program with Catapult’s co-founders, Bonni Cohen and Lisa Kleiner Chanoff, in areas including story development, production process, fundraising and distribution strategy.
