This National Endowment for the Humanities program supports documentary films that explore international and transnational themes in the humanities. Projects are strongly encouraged to demonstrate international collaboration with scholars based in the U.S. or abroad. Possible topics include, but aren’t limited to:
*An examination of a critical issue in ethics, religion or history through an international lens
*An exploration of a topic that transcends borders
*A biography of a foreign leader, writer, artist or historical figure
*An exploration of the history of culture of a specific region, country or community outside of the United States
The program supports filmmakers in either the production or development stage. Awards range from one to three years and up to $75,000 (for development) or $800,000 (for production). Applications are due June 12, 2013 for projects beginning in January, 2014.
