This Cooperative Agreement will begin on or after January 1, 2019, and may extend for up to 12 months.
Program Description The purpose of this program solicitation is to select an organization (Cooperator) to administer the Documentary Sustainability Project, a program of the National Endowment
for the Arts (NEA) aimed at strengthening the documentary filmmaking field through knowledge exchange, cross-sector collaboration, and research.
In 2017, the NEA hosted a one-day Documentary Sustainability Summit featuring filmmakers, producers, distributors, film festival representatives, funders, and other stakeholders to discuss the documentary filmmaking field.
A State of the Field Report was subsequently published, which identified key issues and action items necessary to ensure the sustainability and future growth of the field.
