In May 2020, Hot Docs and the Slaight Family Foundation founded the Hot Docs-Slaight Family Fund, the first of its kind in Canada.

Applications are now open with a deadline of August 4, 2024 5pm ET.

This documentary fund is dedicated to filmmakers telling engaging, high-quality stories that embrace music artists in all its forms and that demonstrate Canadian music’s role in the world. The Fund also welcomes international music stories told through the lens of Canadian filmmakers.

The Hot Docs-Slaight Family Fund will financially support 3-5 documentary projects each year with amounts ranging from $15,000 to $60,000 CAD. Successful applicants will receive creative and professional development support.
