Selection Process

Projects will be reviewed by a program curator and a diverse screening committee consisting of grantmakers, filmmakers, and media users.

Approximately 15 films are selected to be in the festival and, of those, two films are presented with the Henry Hampton Award for Excellence in Film & Digital Media. Named in honor of a man who broke traditional molds of documentary filmmaking and put excellence and innovation at the forefront of his work, the Henry Hampton Award honors the very best in foundation-funded media.

If your film or video is selected for the festival, it will be promoted to funders and screen during the Council on Foundations’ Annual Conference, the Fall Conference for Community Foundations, and the Family Philanthropy Conference*. A short clip will also be shown on the Council’s Film & Video Festival website at

*Only the winners of the Henry Hampton Award, however, will be invited to attend the Annual Conference
