Due April 6th, 2020 - Tongal is looking for unbelievable and undiscovered true stories about incredible people in extraordinary situations - that only YOU can tell. Pitch the documentary projects that you are most passionate about for the opportunity to produce them as a full-length film or multi-part series.

The best documentaries are an unforgettable mix of remarkable characters and exceptional circumstances - but that mix is an unpredictable one. Documentary subjects vary so widely that it's hard to make any generalizations about what works... but, if there was one common thread, they'd say it's that all the best docs come from someone driven by a true passion for the subject.

Tongal has teamed up with one of Hollywood’s premium content studios - the A-list, Academy Award type - and they’re looking for big, bold, entertaining, extraordinary, weird, wild, quirky, curious, and courageous real-life stories. The kind of stories that only you have the ability & passion to tell. Fresh perspectives and explorations of unique and fascinating subjects. If this ask sounds a bit familiar, it's because they ran a project just like this last October - and the documentaries that came out of it fit the mold they described above, so they're doing it again. The Sponsor was so impressed with what they saw - and the passion that drove the filmmakers behind the pitches - that they wanted to open this back up for a chance to explore even more stories.

This is a massive opportunity, and whether you've already started filming and you're looking for finishing funds, or you've been carefully conceptualizing your project for years, it doesn't matter. The studio wants to help bring the best stories to life from whatever stage they're at - as feature-length films, or as multi-part series for the top TV and streaming platforms - so this is your chance to be 20 Feet From Stardom.
