The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, an arm’s-length organization backed by the U.S. Congress,
has committed up to US$20 million to America At
A Crossroads
, a multi-year initiative that will
fund high-budget TV docs. Launched in February,
applications to Crossroads must focus on the political and cultural changes triggered by the 9/11 attacks. Grants will be given in three areas: R&D, production and dissemination (distribution, promotion and outreach). Foreign applications – with a U.S.
partner – are encouraged. http://www.cpb.org MS
