Borderline Media's strategy and design work has successfully secured close to $1,000,000 in foundation support for filmmakers. Our clients' projects have premiered in competition and won at Sundance, programmed special events at the Council on Foundations annual leadership conference and screened for policymakers on Capitol Hill. Borderline campaigns have informed national public policy debates on reparations, influenced state-based reform for public defense, and supported workshops for grassroots advocates working to close the achievement gap.  Contact us to learn how to schedule a free, 30-minute consultation for your film or media project.


Our team members are regularly invited to moderate, participate in or produce panels, workshops and webinars for the industry. We have advised on programs for the BritDoc Foundation and National Federation of Community Broadcasters; reviewed proposals for Latino Public Broadcasting and CPB's Diversity and Innovation Fund; produced workshops for SilverDocs, Firelight Media Producers' Lab, Community Cinema and the CPB/PBS Producers Academy; and appeared on panels for Sheffield Doc/Fest, Ambulante, Wyncote Foundation, Leeway Foundation and NEH.
