Via Docs in Progress:
“Now in its sixth year, the Docs In Progress Fellowship provides 10 selected filmmakers from across the DC/Baltimore Metro area monthly facilitated meetings where they come together to share progress with their projects and get feedback and advice on issues related to the documentary landscape, work/life balance, and the creative process.
Benefits to Fellows include:
Accountability: By setting realistic goals for progress and having monthly check-in sessions with the facilitator and other participants, Fellows are more likely to make significant progress with their films than going it alone.
Expertise from seasoned documentary industry professionals who come as guest presenters on topics ranging from work/life balance to time management to getting control of your story.
A professional development voucher which can be applied to a one-day or one-evening Docs In Progress program during the course of their Fellowship. This could be used towards registration for a one day or one night workshop or Peer Pitch.
A 60-minute consultation with Executive Director Erica Ginsberg about their work-in-progress. This may focus on mentoring to help get a project ready to apply for a work-in-progress screening, Fiscal Sponsorship, or on questions related to structural development, fundraising, or outreach.
Featured as a Fellow on the Docs In Progress website, including a photo and information about the work-in-progress.
Exclusive networking opportunities with past Fellows as part of our larger Fellowship network.”
DEADLINE: January 18.
