What we fund

The AXS Film Fund

This program is for creators of color in documentary filmmaking or nonfiction new media who identify as having a disability. We seek to bring visibility to creators who are oftentimes overlooked. While we ask that a person of color with a disability is a key contributor to the project, we welcome diverse teams to apply.

Each year we award up to five creators with grants of up to $10,000 each to assist them in finishing their projects in any stage of production.
