The POMgrant Bursary was established to encourage aspiring film Directors who explore multicultural identity through a cinematic lens. Through funds generated from the Festival, the POMgrant gives back to the film community while simultaneously fostering the future work of emergent filmmakers.

Through this reciprocal relationship, the Festival can continue to flourish in subsequent years. Past recipients include directors from Armenia, Los Angeles, Montreal, and Toronto.
