Supporting the work of non-fiction filmmakers highlighting issues of gender equality, racial justice, human rights and environmental sustainability
Gucci is pleased to join the Sundance Institute Documentary Fund, which supports the work of non-fiction filmmakers who continue to elevate and advance cultural dialogue and break new ground in creativity and innovation.
The partnership builds on Gucci’s 13-year signature Gucci Tribeca Documentary Fund (GTDF) with Tribeca Film Institute, which from 2008-2020 supported 105 films and provided more than USD $1.5 million in grants to feature-length documentary films with a focus on critical social issues.
Starting with the 2022 winter grant cycle, the Sundance Institute | Gucci Fund will support the work of non-fiction artists from around the world in the development, production and post-production of work that looks at the world in complex, creative and provocative ways. The Fund will support artists at all stages of their careers, and seeks to uplift underrepresented voices and stories from within historically marginalized communities. Artists working to shed light on issues of gender equality, racial justice, human rights, and environmental sustainability will be prioritized.
“Documentary film is a vital creative tool that opens our eyes to important issues, and helps us evaluate the way we perceive and understand the world around us. We are proud to play a role in advancing the reach of these critical stories, and their capacity to ultimately drive meaningful change in our world.”
