At Impact Partners, we look to finance powerful documentaries that address contemporary social issues.

We are looking for projects that tell strong, cinematic stories, explore the urgent issues and questions of our time, and have a clear point of view and artistic vision. Through our general fund, we invest in 8-10 projects a year, and review projects year-round on a rolling basis. If you are working on a feature-length documentary and are looking for funding, we welcome you to submit a Letter of Inquiry.   

In order to streamline and simplify the submissions process for our team and filmmakers applying, we have transitioned to a Letter of Inquiry-based process.  



If you are interested in applying to our general fund, please send a Letter of Inquiry via email to The LOI should fit on one page and be around 500 words. Please submit the LOI as an attachment in a .doc or .pdf format. The LOI should include:

  • Logline or short synopsis
  • Background on the film team: directors, producers and any key crew
  • Information about the stage of the project
  • Total budget amount and the financing raised so far (include a list of funding sources to date)

Our team will respond to your LOI in 2-4 weeks. If you are invited to submit a full proposal, we will follow up with you directly with next steps.
