Canadian festival Hot Docs is partnering with the R&M Lang Foundation on an international production fund for documentaries focused on under-represented or marginalized communities.

The CrossCurrents Doc Fund aims to foster short- and mid-length documentary filmmaking by emerging directors from within such communities, and encourage understanding of unheard voices among broad audiences.

The R&M Lang Foundation has established the fund, which will be administered by Hot Docs and award a CA$10,000 grant to one successful applicant per year.

The deadline to apply is January 10. For complete details and applications guidelines, visit Hot Docs’ website.
