“Today TFI announced the grantees for the 2014 TFI Documentary Fund. After more than 500 submissions from 70 countries, 11 projects will receive a total of $175,000 to fund their projects in various stages of development through post-production. This is an increase of $15,000 from last year . . . The fund aims to advance character-driven, non-fiction filmmaking featuring creative and unexplored perspectives from around the world. Highlights include Penny Lane, who is following up her attention-grabbing feature debut Our Nixon with the equally interesting NUTS! . . . ”
