"We are looking for artists, musicians, filmmakers, designers and other creators working on uncompromised projects representing a diverse, original perspective seeking global distribution."

The project has "a rolling call," meaning interested parties can apply whenever they're fully prepared. Each successful applicant will receive "$2,500- $100,000 in marketing and distribution funding," to be used however they desire.
