Join David Weinstein, senior program officer with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), to learn more about National Endowment for the Humanities Media grants. The NEH’s Media program funds documentary films, radio programs, and podcasts in the humanities. The program has supported many award-winning historical documentaries. There are two levels of funding: Development and Production. David will discuss funding for long-form documentaries as well as an exciting new grant program, Short Documentaries. This program funds short documentary films (up to 30 minutes) that engage audiences with humanities ideas. David will offer tips on preparing your proposal, discuss what makes an application competitive, and share news. There will be ample opportunity for Q&A.
