Story Fund

The Climate Story Fund supports stories and impact campaigns from around the world that move us closer to a climate just and biodiverse future. The global fund is open to all films, including long form, shorts or episodic, as well as podcasts and radio documentaries ,and will support both production and impact campaigns that are ready to launch during the next 12 months.
"Storytelling is how we will understand the extent of the climate emergency, and the required solutions. We need to move beyond the monoculture of past climate narratives, and support a wave of both climate stories that center the voices of those on the frontlines and strategic impact campaigns that can activate audiences who have often been ignored"
Megha Agrawal Sood, Head of the Climate Story Unit, Doc Society.

BFI / Doc Society Fund

The BFI/Doc Society Fund supports creative and hybrid feature documentaries and short films by diverse creative voices from all over the UK. The fund has two calls a year for feature documentaries, and one for shorts.

"We are thrilled with this partnership with the BFI and the opportunity it gives us to enable brilliant British documentary films to shine on an international stage. What excites us most is that it will also give us the means to spot, develop and nurture new British documentary talent in a strategic and meaningful way."
Sandra Whipham, Director, Doc Society


The Threshold Foundation looks to support documentaries that address the most important issues facing the world using a plan of action that is powerful, innovative, and unexpected.
