Meet the Funder: Ford Foundation
Wednesday, January 11th | 6:30-8:30pm
The Ford Foundation seeks to reduce inequality in all of its forms, and artist-driven documentary and emerging media projects are crucial to this effort. The projects and people supported inspire imaginations, disrupt stereotypes, and help transform the conditions that perpetuate injustice and inequality. Recently funded films include When Two Worlds Collide, Whose Streets?, Catching the Sun, The Return, Citizen Four and Free Cece. Just Films annually disperses about $10million to organizations with content grants ranging from $50k-$300k. Join WMM and Chi-hui Yang, Program Officer for Ford Foundation’s Just Films Initiative, in conversation to discuss what’s new, what they’re looking for in 2017 and how to put your best foot forward when applying for funding. Yang comes with incredible knowledge, not being just on the inside of the Ford Foundation, but as an accomplished curator and educator of film and documentary. This is an evening not to be missed!
