Trump bashing Hollywood director Ava DuVernay’s film focused advocacy group Array is teaming up with Google to create a $500,000 feature film grant for creatives who hail from what they call “underrepresented communities.”
The endowment, which is known as The Array + Google Feature Film Grant, will allocate funds so that the recipient will be able to produce his or her first full-length feature, according to a report by Deadline.
“Having started my filmmaking journey by self-funding projects, this is a full-circle moment,” DuVernay said. “I’m pleased to partner with Google and Array’s grant advisory committee to identify an emerging writer/director to bring their vision to the screen.”
“Inclusive storytelling is at the heart of Array’s mission and we’re proud to also provide access to Array Crew in order to further ensure that the set of the grantee’s film reflects the full array of the world around us,” DuVernay added.
