Grants for Radical Videographers

Grants for Radical Videographers | Call for proposals | Summer 2022

For a quarter of a century, the Institute for Anarchist Studies has funded creative intellectual work that furthers anarchist ideas and makes them accessible to a broad audience. This grant cycle is dedicated to sponsoring video projects that take an intersectional anarchist approach to subjects that may include:

  • healing and responses to trauma in BIPOC and trans communities;
  • mutual aid work in Indigenous communities;
  • responses to the oppression of migrant peoples;
  • responses to the renewed threat of nuclear warfare; and/or
  • responses to the “post-truth” condition and mass disinformation.

We want to fund production of video projects that would further public understanding on at least one of the above topics, and we would like to support media makers of underrepresented identities who demonstrate financial need. Material funded by this grant will be perpetually available for the IAS to host, share, and excerpt at will,  while being credited to the creators, who are also free to use and share it at will. Videos may be of any length, but priority will be given to projects that will be completed (videos ready to be shown) by April 30, 2023 (six months after grants are announced). A total of $2,500 in grant money is available.

Submissions are now open and will close August 1, 2022.

We recommend preparing all required information and materials in advance of beginning the application. You will need to: succinctly summarize your project, audience, and outreach plan; provide links to your previous video work (Instagram, YouTube, or personal website links are welcome); and also provide a budget and timeline for completion.
