The Native American Public Telecommunications announced March 16th deadline for proposals.
The NAPT Public Media Content Fund will support video projects with significant Native involvement - particularly compelling projects that profile Native American leaders for the series Native Word: Stories Past & Present. "The purpose of the Content Fund is to increase the diversity of voices in public media," said NAPT Executive Director Shirley K. Sneve (Rosebud Sioux). "There are very few avenues open to documentary filmmakers, and NAPT believes that our organization has a great responsibility to support the creation, promotion and distribution of Native media.
NAPT also believes that support from NAPT can help open other doors for various forms of other funding." Projects in any phase of production are eligible to apply for funding with NAPT. Awards for research and development range from $5,000 to $20,000, awards for production or completion can be up to $100,000 and New Media awards range from $5,000 to $20,000.
