FNFVF Friend: Diverse Voices in Docs Workshop Seeks Filmmakers

DVIDflyer2014Chicago, IL) Applications are now being accepted for the Diverse Voices In Docs 2015 program! Apply at kartemquin.com/diversevoices before December 19th!

Diverse Voices in Docs (#DVID) is a professional development and mentorship program for documentary makers of color, organized by Kartemquin Films and the Community Film Workshop of Chicago.

At the core of the fellowship are six engaging three-hour workshops at the Community Film Workshop, with creative advice provided by Kartemquin Films’ world-class staff and associates. Each session will provide practical skill-enrichment designed to help incubate your next documentary project, as well as time to network and share experience with your cohort of participants.

Applicants should be filmmakers who have played a principal role in a completed production (producer, writer, director, editor, etc.) and have experience or work history that demonstrated their commitment to social issue documentary. We will facilitate continued engagement throughout the six-month workshop program, and connect you to an expert community, new collaborators, and a wider network of funders and distributors. The program will culminate in exposure through a final public exhibition.

For more information on the program please email Beckie Stocchetti, Kartemquin Community Engagement Manager at beckie@kartemquin.com or visit kartemquin.com/diversevoices.
