The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $60,000 to Aubin Pictures to support the launch of the Criminal Justice Media Archive, an online portal and offline networking and convening hub for filmmakers working with criminal justice reform content. The Criminal Justice Media Archive will compile footage from documentaries and news interviews and make it available for repurposing. Chloe Cockburn, our Program Officer for Criminal Justice Reform, believes making footage more accessible and promoting stronger connections between filmmakers will help increase exposure and engagement around criminal justice reform issues.

This discretionary grant is a renewal of our December 2017 support of a scoping project, and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.

Aubin Pictures — Criminal Justice Media Archive Scoping

The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $25,000 to Aubin Pictures to support a criminal justice media archive scoping project. The grant will allow Aubin Pictures to conduct a needs assessment and propose a strategic development plan to catalogue and archive media footage related to criminal justice reform (e.g. interviews, courtroom or prison footage). The eventual goal is to help make such media footage more accessible to criminal justice reform advocates and storytellers in a way that will support their ability to effectively persuade and communicate with stakeholders.

This is a discretionary grant, and falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.
