Announcing the Inaugural William Greaves Fund Recipients

“Witnessing the global resonance of uprisings for Black lives and a pandemic that has devastated the most marginalized communities, the international nature of the William Greaves Fund reflects our commitment to stories that address the major problems of today with nuance and complexity, and reflect a broad range of often underrepresented views.”

Limbal continued, “In our work within the Documentary Lab over the last decade, we have seen too many talented filmmakers of color leave the field because they cannot get proper support to make their next project. The William Greaves Fund is Firelight Media’s response to this persistent problem.”
