Grants to Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Maine artists in eligible states for video and film projects.

The main creative personnel of eligible documentary film and video projects must live in one of the six New England states.
Grant funds may be used to support projects in production and post-production stages. The goal of LEF New England is to fund the work of independent documentary film and video artists in the region, and to broaden recognition and support for their work, both locally and nationally. It also supports programs that highlight the rich history and ongoing legacy of innovation within New England’s independent film community.
LEF invests in documentary film and video projects that demonstrate excellence in technique, originality of vision and voice, and creativity in form. The strongest proposals will be those that clearly articulate the ways in which the proposed project aligns with the program’s funding criteria.
