The Bridging Cultures through Film: International Topics program supports projects that examine international and transnational themes in the humanities through documentary films. These projects are meant to spark Americans’ engagement with the broader world by exploring one or more countries and cultures outside of the United States. Proposed documentaries must be analytical and deeply grounded in humanities scholarship.
The Division of Public Programs encourages the exploration of innovative nonfiction storytelling that presents multiple points of view in creative formats. The proposed film must range in length from a stand-alone broadcast hour to a feature-length documentary.
We invite a wide range of approaches to international and transnational topics and themes, such as
an examination of a critical issue in ethics, religion, or history, viewed through an international lens;
a biography of a foreign leader, writer, artist, or historical figure; or
an exploration of the history and culture(s) of a specific region, country, or community outside of the United States.
