Offer: Call for Applications: PUMA.Creative Catalyst Award for Documentary Films

DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 27TH

The PUMA.Creative Catalyst Award is an international documentary development fund with three applications rounds annually offering up to 5,000 euros per recipient.

This is a rapid response fund, providing resources in the early stages of documentary projects, to shoot and edit a film trailer. The fund is open to filmmakers of any nationality and awards will be given on a triannual basis. The deadline for the SPRING CALL, 2012 is February 27th at 18:00 (UK Time).

These awards are open to emerging and established filmmakers working anywhere in the world.
We welcome one-off, creative documentary ideas of any length and subject, in any style and form, but we are particularly keen on ideas that speak to PUMA.Vision’s core values of Safe, Peace and Creative.
"These days most funders want to see a 20 minute rough-cut before committing to a project. The award money will allow us to do this."
Steven Markovitz, Director of 'Rollaball'

Awardees for the Winter call 2011 can be viewed here. Please join our mailing list to keep up with announcements and information about future application periods. Take a look at our Puma Catalyst Awards Film Directory to see all previously funded developments.
