|At Impact Partners, we look to finance powerful documentaries that address contemporary social issues. We welcome unsolicited submissions. Any filmmaker wishing to submit his or her material must include ALL of the following
• WRITTEN TREATMENT:
The treatment should include information that best communicates what your project is about and cover the points below. Length isn't important but the average treatment is 1-10 pages.1-3 sentence logline
• BUDGET INFORMATION
Including total budget; funds raised to date and from what sources; amount needed to finish
• TRAILER AND/OR ROUGH CUT
You can send a trailer, extended scene selects, or rough cut.
• COMPLETED & SIGNED APPLICATION FORM
Written treatments, budgets, and the signed application form should be submitted in PDF format. We prefer links for trailers and rough cuts, but DVDs can be mailed separately if necessary. We require a signed application form before reviewing any submission due to the fact that we receive so many hundreds of submissions with overlapping topics.
ANY SUBMISSIONS THAT DO NOT INCLUDE ALL FOUR COMPONENTS — TREATMENT, BUDGET INFO, SIGNED APPLICATION FORM, AND TRAILER/ROUGH CUT — WILL NOT BE REVIEWED.
Due to the high volume of submissions, we do not accept written materials in hard copy format and we will not be able to return submitted materials or provide feedback on submissions.
All submissions must be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
