The Harvard Film Study Center is seeking $338,981 in outright funds for the production of the Web site
WEAVING HISTORIES. The total budget is $564,521, of which $144,639 is being provided, in-kind, by Harvard University. We will be seeking the rest of the production funding necessary from public and private foundations. WEAVING HISTORIES is expected to become a valuable and lasting public resource in the humanities.
This Web site project is built upon many layers of NEH funded work: grants to numerous archives and museums that have helped the project, grants to many members of its advisory board; grants to state humanities councils that have aided the project; and, most importantly, grants to Laurel Ulrich to begin her research on Matha Ballard's diary, which led to the writing A Midwife's Tale, and a series of grants to The Filmmakers Collaborative/Blueberry Hill Productions to support the scripting and the production of the recently released film A Midwife's Tale.
