Call for Applications: Impact Mentorship for Documentaries in Development

Applications are now open for impact mentorship for documentaries in development by underrepresented creators, by Story Money Impact (SMI).

Many documentarians create a film in response to a pressing story in order to increase awareness and understanding of the issue by spotlighting, investigating, or humanizing what is happening. This extends the consideration and forethought of the filmmaker beyond what the film is about, to ‘how can this film be used to make positive change?’ With this in mind, a set of best practices have been surfacing that takes into account how the film will be used as a tool for impact once it is complete. 

Story Money Impact (SMI) is offering impact coaching hours to three Canadian documentary films (25–90 mins in length) by underrepresented creators that are in the development phases of their projects.

Story Money Impact is a Canadian charity that uplifts the work of independent media-makers by connecting them with allies and audiences to enable positive change. We believe that when supported by aligned partnership, issue-based media can reach key constituents to build empathy and action toward social and environmental well-being. As an organization, we cultivate the field for this work through research, education, skills development, convening, innovation and fostering relationships.
