Latino Public Broadcasting Seeking Proposals for Documentary Films from Latino American Perspective.

  Grant Amount: Funding requests may range from $40,000 up to $100,000.


The LPB Current Issues Fund (CIF) provides production and post-production funding to documentary films from the Latino American perspective (60 or 90 minutes only) that explore contemporary civic and social justice issues, incorporate a journalistic approach into the filmmaking process, and have resonance for a U.S. national audience.

Journalistic practice must be integral to the project, with commitment to fairness, objectivity and accuracy. Journalistic practice is broadly defined and may include, but is not limited to, extensive research, accessing public records and data, public accountability or investigative approach, transparency of sources, and a reliance on facts.

LPB is looking for stories that explore timely issues, demonstrate artistic storytelling and have potential to engage communities in civic discourse beyond the broadcast.

Applicant must retain the copyright, artistic, budgetary and editorial control over the proposed project

Applicant must be at least 18 years of age, be citizens or legal residents of the United States or its territories, and have previous film or television experience demonstrated by detailed personnel bios or resumes
Only one application for a project may be submitted per review period and the applicant may not make submissions for any additional projects.

Projects submitted must be 60 min or 90 min in length; shorter formats are not accepted.

Applicants applying to the CIF are not eligible to apply to the PMCF with the same or different project.

First time full-length media maker applicants must have been producing other short format productions for at least three years.

Applicant must agree to create only one version of the documentary. (A re-edited version of the LPB funded program cannot be re-packaged for another television/broadcast network).
