The Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective (BFC) is currently open for new members. BFC is a tight-knit community of professional filmmakers in Brooklyn, NY who are dedicated to innovative approaches to filmmaking. Show them your best work! The only stipulation is that you have creative control over the work and you make passion projects. (Sorry, they don’t workshop ads or commercial work.)
They believe that collective should represent diverse voices. And they believe films should be made by people with different backgrounds and perspectives, too. The Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective welcomes women, filmmakers of color, immigrants, members of the LGBTQ community and others who identify with underrepresented groups. They strive to have a diverse, comfortable, creative environment for everyone!
This year, the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective will also invite one new member as an Assistant Coordinator for the group. This opening is reserved for an emerging filmmaker with a unique voice and diverse background who is eager to be an active member of their community. Prior filmmaking experience is not required, but the person should have a strong desire to pursue filmmaking and be available on a weekly basis to help coordinate their meetings, special events, and social media outreach.
Their mission is to be a supportive network of filmmakers and they are actively seeking new members who can add unique perspectives and approaches to their existing community.
The 2017 new member application is due August 1st with a fee of $5. Please click here for the application: http://www.brooklynfilmmakerscollective.com/news/bfc-member-applications-are-now-open
