  • Hot Docs-Blue Ice Docs Fund: This fund enables more African documentary filmmakers to tell their stories and contribute to the next generation of African documentary talent.
  • Hot Docs-Slaight Family Fund:  This documentary fund is dedicated to filmmakers telling engaging, high-quality stories that embrace music artists in all its forms and demonstrate Canadian music’s role in the world.
  • Hot Docs Ted Rogers Fund:  Supports Canadian documentary projects. Over the coming 10 years, production grants will be distributed to Canadian documentary filmmakers. Up to $20,000 will be granted to three or four projects each year.
