We are committed to working towards equal representation in the trail running creative and films communities. Through the DEI Film Grant, we aim to empower filmmakers who are focused on telling the underrepresented stories of women, LGBTQA+, and BIPOC communities by providing intentional funding and support for their projects.

 


We hope to premiere the films supported by this grant in our 2021 fall tour. Priority selection for the Fall Show will be given to applications submitted by July 15th.


 

 

The grant is available in three funding tiers: 

 

  • $100-500 - New equipment, new software, funds for a short and simple film, etc.
     

  • $500-1,000 - Additional funding for an already partially funded film, additional equipment, additional staffing, etc.
     

  • $1,000-$3,000 - Major funding for a short to medium length documentary, additional funding for an already partially funded full length film, etc. 

Applicants may select the funding level that best suits the needs of their project.

Qualifications:

  • Amateur through professional experience with media/film
