The Rei Foundation and Doc Edge Film Fund are now accepting submissions from New Zealand and international filmmakers. The Fund is a significant opportunity for filmmakers to make a short documentary film for a youth audience. Up to NZ$80,000 (that's about US$50,000) is available to support the production of up to four short documentaries over the next year. From its first round in 2019, the Fund supported James Muir's A Broken Earth, Jess Feast's Rise, and Morgan Leary's We Rock, all of which premiered in the 2020 Doc Edge Festival. The Fund accepts applications from filmmakers around the world until 31 August, 2020 (NZ time).
