Application open for LPB Current Issue Fund (CIF) 2022. Up to $100,000.

The LPB Current Issues Fund (CIF) provides production and post-production funding to documentary films from the Latino American perspective (60 or 90 minutes only) that explore contemporary civic and social justice issues, incorporate a journalistic approach into the filmmaking process, and have resonance for a U.S. national audience.

Journalistic practice must be integral to the project, with commitment to fairness, objectivity and accuracy. Journalistic practice is broadly defined and may include, but is not limited to extensive research, accessing public records and data, public accountability or investigative approach, transparency of sources, and a reliance on facts.

LPB is looking for stories that explore timely issues, demonstrate artistic storytelling and have potential to engage communities in civic discourse beyond the broadcast.


Funding requests may range from $40,000 up to $100,000.
