Black Public Media's (BPM) Open Call is our chance to celebrate the complexity of the Black experience through story. We look forward to receiving proposals on a range of stories told in a variety of styles, platforms and perspectives that are underway.
This year’s Open Call is for feature-length documentaries and shorts (nonfiction or scripted) that are currently in pre-production, production, or post-production and intended for public media distribution. Selected projects will receive production funding to advance the work. There are no limits on the subject area. However, we encourage work that will promote discourse and engage audiences around a critical social issue.
