Do you have an idea for a compelling documentary project? The 2013 AbelCine Documentary Grant was established to help get your story told. We’re asking you to create a 2-5 minute video pitch and upload it to Vimeo – you’ll have the chance to win one of three equipment usage grants worth a combined total of $100,000.

But it’s not just us you’re pitching to – it’s your fellow filmmakers as well. Once all the Vimeo submissions are in, 10 finalists will be chosen based on the number of “Likes” from the Vimeo community. A select panel of judges, comprised of AbelCine and industry experts, as well as filmmakers Ellen Kuras, ASC, Mark Benjamin, and Peter Schnall, will review the finalists’ pitches and determine the three grant recipients.

Documentaries have always been close to AbelCine’s heart. In fact, many of our original clients are documentary filmmakers. Now we want to make sure that the next generation of documentarians has a chance to tell their stories too.
