Applications are due Aug. 21 for the Waterways Film Project

“Indiana Humanities seeks proposals for the creation of high-quality short films (5-15 minutes) that explore Hoosiers’ relationships to our state’s waterways, including but not limited to the White River watershed. We plan to award 3-6 proposals that represent a range of stories and viewpoints that complement and/or deepen (rather than repeat) themes and ideas expressed in previous films about Indiana waterways, including those we produced about the White River in 2018-2019.

 The 2020 Waterways Film Project builds on the success and momentum of the White River films we funded in 2018-2019, as well as subsequent film projects we have initiated. Film is a special medium that allows for storytelling that complements the other ways we’re inviting Hoosiers to think, read and talk about Indiana waterways, including the White River, through our Next Indiana Campfires program. We are also eager to create more opportunities for Hoosiers to have their own experiences documented and reflected back to them on screen, as well as to support the burgeoning community of filmmakers based in and telling stories about Indiana.”

Selected filmmakers will receive $6,500. Applications are due Aug. 21, 2020 and films must be completed by June 1, 2021.
