The IDA+XRM Media Incubator supports short vérité documentary films from around the globe, with an emphasis on emerging filmmakers and new perspectives. Both a fund and a mentorship program, the Incubator provides production and post-production grants and mentorship from Academy and Emmy award-nominated directors to filmmakers crafting character-driven observational shorts. Inclusion and diversity, both in terms of the filmmaking team and subject matter, are a priority of the fund.
With major support from XRM Media, the Incubator will grant three filmmakers with $25,000 each. In 2021, the Incubator mentors are Oscar-nominated directors Skye Fitzgerald (Hunger Ward) and Smriti Mundhra (St. Louis Superman), and Emmy-nominated director Nadia Hallgren (Becoming).
