Doc Society Climate Story Fund 2024 (up to $150,000)
The Doc Society climate story fund is seeking to support compelling storytelling and impact strategies from around the world that can help audiences envision the just transition and activate them to make these visions a reality.
They will prioritize applicants that creatively explore how communities today are experimenting with new pathways for a more safe and just future for all; how responsive governments and civil society are counteracting the efforts of a fossil fuel industry determined to slow down the radical transformation of our livelihoods; and how leaders are steadfastly navigating complexity as they remain committed to repairing past harms.
They are eager for stories that showcase how climate action can lead to abundance. How systems are being redesigned to be more Inclusive, creating more opportunities without leaving anyone behind. Not stories that are overloaded with technical language and facts. Rather stories that deeply resonate with a universal love for place, love for community, and love for future generations.

Frequently Asked Question
Can I apply with a project that I have previously submitted to the Climate Story Fund?
Certainly! We may not have given funds in the past for several reasons, including how near the project was to completion at the time. Since we do not support development or pre-production with this fund, we would advise you to review our previously supported projects to make sure your concept is appropriate for this kind of fund and that your timing is appropriate.
What categories of media is this fund covering?
Within a year of receiving the grant, we are seeking creative nonfiction projects that can wrap up production with funding from the Climate Story Fund. Podcasts, radio documentaries, and long-form, short-form, or episodic documentaries can all fall under this category. The Fund is also open to proposals from finished fiction and nonfiction projects in any media that aim to launch an impact pilot within a year of receiving the grant to reach audiences that are not usually involved in the climate discourse.
My story has climate-themed elements but isn’t strictly about climate issues. Can I still apply?
Sure, but you’ll have to show that you plan to use your impact pilot to talk about climate-related topics.
Can I submit a speculative application for a project that hasn’t yet been made
No, the funds focus is on projects that are nearly finished in 2024 and are now in production.
