The Oregon Made Creative Foundation is launching a $20,000 grant focused on BIPOC Filmmakers and Stories.
Oregon’s open spaces and outdoor pursuits are for all Americans and visitors, yet there is a well-documented inequity in America that is deeply rooted in our shared cultural history, and as a whole, our outdoor spaces are not equally utilized for a multitude of historical, social and cultural reasons.
The Outdoor Adventure Film Grant ’21 (OAFG21) aims to help support and amplify stories and storytellers (both in front of and behind the camera) utilizing Oregon’s outdoor spaces as a backdrop. The OAFG21 specifically invites experienced BIPOC filmmakers and on-camera subjects that can create a short film pitch that should be able to inform, inspire, capture and/or reveal a personal journey involving an outdoor pursuit that is set against the backdrop of Oregon’s majestic landscape.
The $20,000 Grant (the 4th in this partnership series) is being provided by the Oregon Made Creative Foundation in conjunction with Travel Oregon.We hold these three values to be important; justice, opportunity, and community – combining together to form a more equitable future.
