The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation announced the good news on Tuesday that $5.7 million in grants will go towards filmmakers and nonfiction media artists from diverse backgrounds.

The grants will go to seven organizations: National Black Programming Consortium, Bay Area Video Coalition, Sundance Institute, Center for Asian American Media, Latino Public Broadcasting, Southern Documentary Fund, and Working Films.

Of the $5.7 million, a total of $2.25 million will be re-granted directly to independent film projects over three years. The remaining funds will go towards fellowships, workshops, training programs, and professional development.

Kathy Im, director of journalism and media at MacArthur remarked, “Together, these seven organizations deepen the pool of people who tell the nation’s stories through documentary, including new media storytelling platforms, formats, and technologies.”
