Documentary Film Fund

Romeo Is Bleeding by Jason Zeldes
The SFFS Documentary Film Fund supports riveting documentaries in postproduction distinguished by compelling stories, intriguing characters and an innovative visual approach. Since 2011, more than $375,000 has been disbursed to documentary filmmakers nationwide.

For the 2014 grant cycle, stewardship of the Documentary Film Fund has generously been taken up by Jennifer Battat and her foundation, the Jenerosity Foundation. The DFF was inaugurated and enjoyed support during its first three years due to the forward-thinking patronage of Sharon and Larry Malcolmson. Additional funders are being sought to expand the grant program even further.
