The Channel 4 BRITDOC Foundation helped us enormously with the funding and development of Moving to Mars, and they're now helping us to decide where the film will go next.


We are a non-profit organisation, set up in part by ex-Channel 4 commissioners and extremely generously funded by Channel 4. The Foundation forms part of Channel 4's mission to support documentary both on and off TV and sits alongside other new initiatives such as Fourdocs
and More4.

The Channel 4 British Documentary Film Foundation exists to secure a creatively ambitious
and diverse future for British documentary, by looking beyond television to develop, fund and distribute the work of the next generation of UK documentary filmmakers.

We are passionate about documentary and we want to work with people who share that passion. We give grants to filmmakers, run ethical pitching forums and outreach workshops, and are working with British charities and foundations to make films that need to be made.
