Cinereach Summer Grants 2010

Summer cycle grants have been awarded!
Dear Friends of Cinereach,
We’re proud to share our Summer 2010 selection of Cinereach Grantees with you! This group of films ranges widely across the geographic and stylistic spectrums and reflects our ongoing efforts to support groundbreaking and relevant work.

Cinereach grants have been awarded to a broad array of films in a relatively short amount of time. This cycle we award deep, targeted support to eight new projects at critical moments in their creative evolution, and reinforce our existing support to three grantees who have received Cinereach funding in previous cycles.

Our organization thrives on empowering filmmakers whose work transcends political or social boundaries, and eschews or reinvents the tenets of form. We’re thrilled to see how films as different as Planet of Snail and The Shark’s Eye can follow such disparate characters, but both use quiet, deliberate storytelling to make rarely seen worlds immediately familiar.

We have come to expect a highly challenging selection process each cycle. Again we saw a vast body of engaging work, and making our decisions was as excruciating and as rewarding as ever. We are pleased to present our 2010 Summer Grantees:

We’d like to extend our gratitude to all our applicants, our grants committee and external reviewers. We continue to be encouraged and amazed by the breadth of moving and courageous work undertaken by the independent film community.

Thank you for being a part of the Cinereach family and please be in touch if you are interested in supporting any of our new projects!
