Grantmakers in Film + Electronic Media (GFEM) has released a report, Funding Media, Strengthening Democracy: Grantmaking for the 21st Century. The publication explores the size and scope of media funding, based on background research, an online survey, roundtable discussions, interviews, and data-sharing with journalists and other researchers. Recommendations for media grantmaking are also included.
The report breaks down media into three main categories:
-media content (information and artistic material)
-media infrastructure (institutions, associations, and individuals that produce and distribute the content)
-media policy (regulations related to communications)
You can access the full report and examine the research findings by visiting the GFEM web site.
