Sundance Institute and Cinereach award 11 grants

Projects emphasize innovative voices and global cultural exchange

Sundance Institute and Cinereach announced $131,000 in grants awarded to 11 projects as part of the Cinereach Project at Sundance Institute.

The Cinereach Project is a $1.5 million, three-year initiative that lends support to documentary and narrative feature film projects in the development, production or post-production stages.

The Cinereach Project selects projects that feature innovative voices with distinctive storytelling styles, and projects with themes involving global cultural exchange and social impact.

The filmmakers chosen for the grants must also be participating in Sundance’s feature or documentary film programs to be selected for the grant.

Projects awarded grants in this round include three documentaries and eight feature films.

Post-production grants for completed features went to Craig Zobel’s “Compliance,” Alejandro Landes’ “Porfirio,” Edwin’s “Postcards From the Zoo” and Liza Johnson’s “Return.”
