About this grant

The Heartefact Fund makes small grants to local nonprofits; organizes exchanges and study visits; and supports, develops, and produces film and theater projects that encourage, support, and facilitate active civic participation that strengthens Serbia’s and the region’s democratic development and European integration processes. All of the grantee’s activities are designed to promote creative approaches to confronting the nationalism and ethnic mistrust that characterizes the region and raising awareness of the importance of human rights protection. This grant increase will allow the grantee to expand its regional programming and deepen its cooperation with other nonprofits working with film and theater as a tool for dealing with the past and promoting reconciliation. Activities will include organizing a screening and workshop at a documentary film festival in Przren, Kosovo, featuring a new film about the play "Truth in Translation".
