The Arab Documentary Film Program (ADFP) is currently accepting applications for its third call for submissions. The deadline for applying for ADFP 2012 is May 7, 2012.
In its third year, the Arab Documentary Film Program, organized in partnership with the Sundance Documentary Institute, continues to support feature-length documentary projects by Arab directors, offering funds for development (up to $15,000 USD per project) and production/post-production (up to $50,000 USD per project). In addition to the financial support, the program was conceived to offer professional support through workshops and discussions that aim to support the directors while working on their projects. Since its launch in late 2009, ADFP has supported 31 documentary projects, including films by Fawzi Saleh, Akram Zaatari, Malek Ben Ismail, Khalil Jeroije and Joana Hadjithomas, Rania and raed Rafei, Hala Alabdallah, Mais Drawazeh, Saeed Taji Farouki and others.
