Documentaries Funded by Illinois Humanities


Illinois Humanities-Supported Documentary Films*
Illinois Humanities is often the first funder for documentary films, but is also often the last, funding engagement activities such as screenings and discussions, as well. Below, please find information more than 70 films made and completed with the support of Illinois Humanities through its Community Grants program. In addition to synopses of each film, included are links to web resources where the film is available for purchase. Many of these films are also accessible on VHS and/or DVD from the Illinois State Library, via the ILLNET catalog online.
