The New Nonfiction Core Application: What’s Changed and Why It’s Important

  • May 18, 2023
  • 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
  • online


The new Nonfiction Core Application, created by the Sundance Institute and the International Documentary Association (IDA), was developed so that filmmakers would only have to create one basic proposal (and focus on the craft of their film!). Since 2016, it has been used by over fifteen funders, fiscal sponsors, and artist organizations, including WMM. The updated 2021 version asks questions that reflect cultural shifts, market demands, and collective movements we are currently living through. 

Join Sundance Institute and former Sundance Documentary Program’s Hajnal Molnar-Szakacs, who was key in drafting both the original and updated versions of the application, and Rahi Hasan, documentary filmmaker and impact strategist. There are no two better folks to lead us through the changes in the Core Application, why this was needed, and to help us understand what funders are looking for in this new era of non-fiction filmmaker but how to be true to your own vision and still get funded.

This is the second session in the four-part webinar series: Leveraging the Power of Story to Finance Your Film
