This program is for creators of color in documentary filmmaking or nonfiction new media who identify as living with a disability. We seek to bring visibility to creators who are oftentimes overlooked. While we prefer that a person of color living with a disability is a key contributor to the project, we welcome diverse teams to apply.

Each year we award up to five creators with grants of up to $10,000 each to assist them in finishing their projects in any stage of production. The AXS Film Fund is a one-time grant for creators of color in documentary filmmaking or nonfiction new media, who identify as living with a disability.

We will fund:
Feature length documentary films, preferably led by a person of color who identifies as living with a disability
Nonfiction new media projects, preferably led by a person of color who identifies as living with a disability.

Artpil periodically publishes submitted announcements of outside opportunities we do not administer. We recommend researching further prior to submitting, especially if entry fees are required.

    SOUND / INSTALLATION ARTIST
    Featured Profile

    Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of simple and functional materials, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. (more…)
