MOFFOM Documentary Grant Application

Letter of Inquiry Form

While applications representing a variety of feature-length documentaries are welcome, so long as there is strong justification for the role of music in that project’s application, funding priority is given to music documentaries. In these cases, music plays a pivotal role in the storytelling itself, in the film’s production or use of archival footage, in the subjects of or the subjects lending narration to the film (whether that focuses on genres, artists, performances, etc.) and makes integral use of scoring and licensed music not only as filmmaking convention but rather as a tool of the storytelling process itself.

Films that have completed or have nearly-completed post-production tend to perform more strongly than films currently still in production. Applications that include a full rough or fine cut tend to perform more strongly than projects that attach clips or work samples. Projects that have specific budget lines for scoring, composition, and licensing and make detailed cases for how MOFFOM funding will impact the project’s bottom line tend to perform more strongly than those who do not specify in detail.

Letters of Inquiry should be no more than three pages in Times New Roman 12 point font. All Letters of Inquiry are due by 11:59 PM on June 3, 2024.
