Outdoor experiences should be for everyone

At Eddie Bauer, we believe that outdoor experiences should be for everyone – regardless of race, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, mental and physical ability or age. In acknowledgement that outdoor spaces are not always a welcoming place for all, it’s our mission to bring the benefits of the outdoors to all communities, particularly those who have been underrepresented.

To further amplify the voices, stories, and experiences of underrepresented communities in the outdoors, we’re excited to introduce the Eddie Bauer One Outside Film Grant.

Each year, we’ll award up to six $10,000 film grants to help fund the creation of outdoor films made by filmmakers from underrepresented groups.

Up to six $10,000 film grants for outdoor filmmakers

For our 2021 Eddie Bauer One Outside Film Grant we’ll be awarding film grants to filmmakers who identify as part of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color communities. In addition to financial support and promotion of the films across Eddie Bauer channels, we aim to partner with filmmakers to tell stories that help all people feel invited, accepted, and validated in their full range of outdoor experiences.
