Feature-Length Non-Fiction

Miller Packan Documentary Film Fund

The Miller / Packan Documentary Film Fund provides grants to feature-length non-fiction projects that address social issues and inspire others. The Fund supports filmmaking in advanced development (up to $10,000), production and post-production stages (up to $25,000). The fund seeks projects that open our eyes through a strong premise, critical thinking, detailed analysis and competing views. Awarded bi-annually, the Fund will award grants totaling $200,000 to between either and twelve film projects.

Applications from all countries are accepted but the project must have an IRS 501(c) (3) status or a Fiscal Sponsor. All films submitted must be in English or have English subtitles.

The Foundation sees documentary film as a potent medium which broadens our vision and changes our perspectives. We provide grants to filmmakers who open our eyes.

Who are Sally Miller & Mae Packan? It’s nearly certain you’ve never heard of these outstanding educators. Like many exceptional educators, their impact goes largely unrecognized. It’s in their honor, and in honor of all the other exceptional yet unheralded educators, that we dedicate this Fund. The Miller / Packan Film Fund supports documentaries that perpetuate the Idealism and Critical Thinking they brought to their students.

  • Just want to thank you for your materials and help over the past year. I could not have raised the $1.5 million or made this film without the materials you provided -- and for $99? The bargain of my career!

    James, Producer, Writer, Director
  • I'm now sending out my completed business plan/film proposal document to potential investors and the one comment I'm getting back almost immediately is that it's so well laid out and professional. Believe me, first impressions really do count.

    Kathleen
  • This is perfect! I have potential investors but I had no idea how to prepare a professional investment package to present to them. (I'm an artiste', not a business person. :) ) The information is clear and easy to understand, and Melissa is very prompt in answering emails.

  • When I came across the Business Plan Tools and the Finance Guide, I felt like I could stop searching for the pot of gold...I’d found it. In one place, with clear, easy to follow materials and spreadsheets, my questions were answered.

    Barry, Filmmaker
  • Hi Melissa! I purchased Package #3 a couple of days ago, and I feel like I'm taking a crash course in film financing. So far, what I've read and learned has been invaluable. Thank you!

    Emily
  • I've made short films before, but this is my first feature, and the first film I've tried raising money for. This template, actually the whole package, has been invaluable and well worth the money I spent on it. So much information is packed into what I got that I'm almost dizzy from it all.
