Film Still: Curl Power

We are excited to announce the 2021 Commitment Grant recipients. From over a hundred applicants, thirteen projects were chosen that embody Mountainfilm’s mission to inspire audiences to create a better world.

“I’m so impressed by the slate of films that were chosen by our grants committee,” says Festival Director Suzan Beraza. “It’s a testament to the tenacity of these filmmakers who are overcoming numerous obstacles to tell stories that inspire, uplift and search for truth.”

The Commitment Grant initiative is part of our pledge to support projects that explore a range of socially, politically and culturally relevant topics that are rooted in the festival’s mission to inspire and empower.

Many grant recipients have not only debuted their projects at Mountainfilm, but have won numerous festival awards. Previous supported projects include Skye Fitzgerald’s Oscar-nominated Hunger Ward and Lifeboat; Adam Nawrot and Sonia Szczesna's Godspeed, Los Polacos!; John Waller's Mending the Line; Jon Kasbe's When Lambs Become Lions; and Mo Scarpelli's Anbessa, to name a just a few.
