The CrossCurrents Fund is an international fund for filmmakers who are directly in—or have a deep connection to—the underrepresented and marginalized community.

The Fund’s mandate is to help develop understanding and appreciation of unheard voices by encouraging projects that aim to reach not only members within the community, but also expanded audiences.

Project funding support will include $10,000 CAD for one short or interactive film; and up to $30,000 CAD for up to three feature films.
