    I don't know if this is too elementary for you, but I found this.

    This is just a small section of a larger article, Deepsingh ji:

    "Find finances for your film. Use Google or check with your local film office to find out what existing documentary funding programs are available to you. For example, the International Documentary Association has a great list of grants you can apply for."
    at Make Your Own Documentary Film: 10 Easy Steps from Conceptualization to Completion

    Then this is the link on google with a number of resources that I didn't check, if you are interested.

    How to make a documentary - Google Search

    The Soros Foundation funds documentaries

    Soros Documentary Fund

    And finally the google link for funding documenataries is

    funding documentary - Google Search

    It is always a pleasure to be able to do something useful for someone else. I wish you luck.

    The following is a proposal for the title of a Sikh Drama.

    (Source: http://www.sikhlionz.com/fromtheheart.pdf)

    10.6 Trip To Sach Khand - The Play
    Principal Characters:
    Bibi jee - a gursikh who is inquiring about a trip to Sach Khand from
    daas - a simple minded villager who has been hired to sell tickets to Sach Khand
    The play begins when Bibi jee heard daas say that tickets to Sach Khand are available.....

    BIBI
    I was hoping you could explain about the 'ticket' to Sach khand. Can one buy one?
    DAAS


    Sure, the panj pyare sell them at various locations at various times of the year. Although the
    high season is April time - Vaisakee to be precise.
    BIBI


    How does one go about making this purchase?
    DAAS


    Easy, one has to drop their worldly wisdom.
    BIBI


    Do you know the cost?
    DAAS


    The cost, pyari bibi jee, is rather high. It is nothing less than one's head.
    BIBI


    What does one need to take this trip?
    DAAS


    The right question would, "What does one need *not* take on this trip?"
    The answer is, "everything".
    BIBI


    And where does one go?
    DAAS


    It really depends on how much of a frequent flyer you are.
    The more frequent flyer miles you have, the less you have to travel.
    At first, the journey takes months of flying. Then when the frequent flyer miles are
    maximum, there is nowhere to go. The destination is here and now.
    BIBI


    Is it beautifully exsquisite there?
    DAAS Bibi jee, what does this poor daas know? I have just been hired to do the trip's PR..
    Bibi jee, if you could spare this wreck some of your travel money so that this povertystricken
    daas could also one day travel to the place this daas talks so much
    about.
    DAAS


    Bibi jee, please have mercy. I am hungry and thirsty. Please spare some of your travel​

    money. Daas too wants to travel with you, but daas has no airfare. Perhaps if you and
    your rich sangis would be kind enough to donate some of your travel money, this daas
    could one day also hope to sit at the same level as you and travel to the destination
    this daas has heard so much about.
    DAAS


    Bibi jee, have mercy, please.​

    BIBI


    What's the scenery like.​

    DAAS


    Once again, pyari bibi jee, daas has only heard about this destination.​

    Daas has heard wonderful things, bibi jee - the trip is worth the cost, bibi jee, it is
    definately worth the cost.
    DAAS


    There is nothing but light there, bibi jee. And daas has heard lovers whispher to each​

    other that this light is nothing like the light daas sees here. This light is made of
    primal element called prem(love). Bibi jee, these lovers who I overheard, bibi jee, said a
    lot of things that this illiterate daas could not understand.
    They whispered that there is no such thing as time - "akaal" they repeated several
    times. Then they said there is no need to take a taxi or a bus to go anywhere - now,
    bibi jee, daas does not understand how that is possible - but this is what those lovers
    whisphered, they said it is possible to travel with something they called "will".
    Then they also whispered that everything sings praises of the One, bibi jee, the One.
    Even flowers which are made of light, sing. This poor daas does not understand, bibi jee. bibi jee, you are cultured and rich, please,please,please bibi jee, have mercy, have mercy and make this poor one understand. Please bibi jee, I will do whatever you tell me.
    BIBI


    Is there much sand. What I mean is, do you need to take beach wear?​

    DAAS


    Bibi jee, I do not recall a mention of sand, bibi jee, Perhaps when the lovers were whispering deep into the night, daas nodded off, as is the habit of this fool.​

    BIBI


    And what about the food?​

    DAAS


    The lovers said the food is the One's praise.​

    BIBI


    Are the natives friendly?​

    DAAS


    The lovers said all the natives are lovers there. Now bibi jee, please tell me daas is a fool and an idiot, this fool has most definately heard something wrong. Now, my rich​

    and cultured bibi jee, how can it be possible for all the natives to be lovers?
    BIBI


    Ok last question, does it get really cold? Mmm...​

    DAAS


    The lovers said that there is no change in the weather there. They said, it is always
    "glowing with prem (love)".
    The play ends as Bibi jee walks away counting down the days to Vaisaikhee when she too​
    can purchas her ticket from the Punj Pyare.
