Support The Redford Center Grants Program

This year, the open call for our 2024-25 Grants program received over 500 applications — more than double the number submitted in prior years. The demand for the funding, mentorship, and professional development that our program offers is strong — and the opportunities for these films to catalyze environmental progress is limited only by how deeply we can invest in their potential. The Redford Center is a non-endowed nonprofit organization; every dollar we award is thanks to our generous community of storytelling advocates. We are still seeking additional contributions to support our 2024–25 cohort of grantees.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in learning more about how you can join the circle of supporters that makes Redford Center Grants possible.
