2022 Sundance Documentary Film Grant

The Sundance Institute Documentary Fund has been provided to 35 projects in various stages, including 5 in development, 15 in production, 10 in post-production, and 5 actively pursuing audience engagement and social impact campaigns. Grants are made possible by The Open Society Foundations, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, Gucci, the Kendeda Fund, and Luminate.

The Fund helps support and empower historically marginalized voices and provides a platform for integral stories to be amplified. Many projects in this year’s slate explore the dynamic interaction between place and identity, including meditations on migration, displacement, departure and return, and narratives centering justice for Indigenous people seeking to reclaim their land and reckon with the legacy of resettlement.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
