Just one year after its launch, JustFilms, the Ford Foundation’s documentary film fund, is providing major support to five independent films selected for competition at the Sundance Film Festival. JustFilms focuses on film, video and digital works that show courageous people confronting difficult issues and actively pursuing a more just, secure and sustainable world. Through 2016, it will invest $10 million every year to support and expand the community of filmmakers and mediamakers around the world focused on creating documentaries with passion and purpose, but who often lack funding to realize their visions or reach audiences. The following films are premiering at the Sundance Film Festival with major support from JustFilms: HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE (David France), LOVE FREE OR DIE (Macky Alston), DETROPIA (Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady), THE HOUSE I LIVE IN (Eugene Jarecki) and RED HOOK SUMMER (Spike Lee). An additional nine films in the festival are receiving funding through JustFilm’s partnerships with the Sundance Documentary Film project and the Independent Television Service (ITVS).
