- To support the development of Just Media and the Criminal Justice Media Database.
The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $60,000 to Aubin Pictures to support the launch of the Criminal Justice Media Archive, an online portal and offline networking and convening hub for filmmakers working with criminal justice reform content. The Criminal Justice Media Archive will compile footage from documentaries and news interviews and make it available for repurposing. Chloe Cockburn, Open Philanthropy's Program Officer for Criminal Justice Reform, believes making footage more accessible and promoting stronger connections between filmmakers will help increase exposure and engagement around criminal justice reform issues.
This grant represents a renewal of Open Philanthropy's previous support for Aubin Pictures and falls within its work on criminal justice reform.
