From the beginning, the Fledgling Fund has been focused on impact the social impact of the projects they support and their impact on the field. That means choosing projects focused on issues affecting vulnerable populations that are poised for action. Fledgling currently has two grants funds that accept applications on a rolling basis, the Fund for Documentary Film Outreach and Engagement and the Special Fund for Rapid Story Deployment. Executive Director Sheila Leddy joins Women Make Movies in a global webinar to discuss impact and outreach and how Fledgling works with filmmakers and their projects to help change the world though funding, in-kind support, mentorship and much, much more. Sign up.

The World Channel is a 24/7 PBS digital channel that offers both original programming and signature PBS non-fiction shows.
