What is The Big Tell?
The Big Tell is a regional filmmaking program offering grants for the
production of 5-minute minidocumentaries that feature stories from
California’s great Central Valley.
Each year, the Central Valley Community Foundation awards ten grants of
$5,000 each for the creation of short films about the amazing people,
places, and activities that make the Central Valley so remarkable.
Winners will have 3 months to complete their 5-minute film, and will receive one-on-one mentorship from Emmy-nominated documentarian Sascha Rice.
The Big Tell is Presented by the James B. McClatchy foundation
with support from Community Media Access Collaborative.
