IFP/New York unveiled a slate of docu projects in development that will split $50,000 in grant funding through its Anthony Radziwill Documentary Fund.
The grants are open to U.S.-based producers and directors. Recipients were selected from a total of 390 proposals.
Recipients of $10,000 each in grant funding include Leslie McCleave’s “How Sweet the Sound — The Blind Boys of Alabama,” Tara Wray’s “Manhattan, Kansas,” Jay Rosenblatt’s “Suicide,” Sam Green’s “The Universal Language” and Lourdes Portillo’s “When the Tide Comes In.”
Fund is named for the late docu producer Radziwill.
IFP/New York further said Tuesday that it will establish a fiscal sponsorship program that will provide the organization with a legal plan to offer financial, administrative and mentorship services to indie projects it selects. Move gives donors to the org the ability to write off charitable deductions on their income taxes.
