California Council for the Humanities Announces Youth Digital Filmmakers Program

If you’re working with youth on D & D in California, you may want to consider applying to the new California Council for the Humanities ( http://calhum.org/ ) grant program Youth Digital Filmmakers. The aim of the program is to support projects that engage California youth in creating short films about how they see California. Each project will involve a local filmmaker, a humanities scholar, and a community-based organization in an effort to create humanities-based media that will be used for community screenings and wider distribution. The program is part of “How I See It,” the newest phase of the council’s California Stories initiative, which is designed to strengthen communities and connect Californians by uncovering personal and community stories that tell the story of California today. “How I See It” will focus on the stories and perspectives of California youth. The council will fund projects in which youth explore the theme of connections (or disconnections) in their individual lives and communities.

The applicant must be a California nonprofit organization or municipal/state agency or be sponsored by one; involve at least one experienced filmmaker or videomaker as a workshop leader/producer; work with a teenage population (14-19 years old); and involve one humanities scholar in the project. CCH will grant up to $30,000 per project. Each grant request must be matched by at least an equivalent amount of cash or in-kind contributions from non-federal sources. Program guidelines, including proposal narrative requirements and an FAQ, are available on the CCH Web site. The online application will be available on the program’s Web site on March 1, 2007. The deadline for applications is April 2, 2007.
