DOCUMENTARY FILMMAKERS IN PROGRESS (fellowship) / by Bear Guerra

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.
