Four documentaries have been selected to receive grants as part of the New York-based Rogovy Foundation’s Miller/Packan Documentary Film Fund for summer 2021.

The fund awards grants totaling US$200,000 to a selection of film projects annually through its summer and winter open calls.

Winners for this summer period are: Yael Melamede’s Speaking Freely, about attorney Floyd Abrams; Marjolaine Grappe’s Untitled Marjolaine Grappe Film, produced by Clare Marash and Xan Parker; Princess A. Hairston’s Tracing the Hairstons, in which the director unravels the history of the largest slave-holding family in the U.S.; and Stephen Ujlaki and Chris Jones’ We are Called to be a Movement, about two movements: the social gospel of Martin Luther King, Jr. and that of white Christian nationalism.

Applications are now being accepted for the winter 2021 open call, which ends Nov. 15.
