The Sandbox Fund offers grants, engagement events, and other opportunities for independent artists seeking to explore the intrinsic link between science and culture through innovative storytelling. The program is administered by the Sundance Institute Documentary Fund, in collaboration with Sandbox Films, a documentary studio that illuminates the art and beauty of scientific inquiry.
Grants are offered to independent artists who are working at the intersection of science and nonfiction storytelling. The partnership identifies and supports nonfiction projects that inspire a deeper interest in science, especially among those who don’t think of themselves as science enthusiasts.
U.S. and international nonfiction projects are eligible, with a focus on feature-length documentary projects.
Deadline: March 8, 2021
