Money… More Film Funds

Yes, see previous posting, there are more and more funds which invest in documentaries, most of them in docs with a social content, but some also stressing that they want cinematic quality. Let me make a commercial for the organization where I spent 9 good years of my working life, quote from the website, go and by the Guide or (better) become a member of EDN:
