Beginning in the summer, the non-profit will hand out six to 10 us$10,000 checks a year, half awarded in June and half in January. To be eligible, doc-makers must be based in the U.S.; the deadline for the first check run is March 1, 2004.

This envelope represents a re-configuration of the Anthony Radziwill Documentary Fund, a purse established four years ago as a single prize given to the winner in the emerging doc filmmaker category at the ifp’s Gotham Awards. It’s named after an Emmy Award winning doc-maker who passed away in 1999. www.ifp.org/docfund MS
