MORE INFO: The Reach Film Fellowship – a prestigious program through which Cinereach offers emerging filmmakers a grant, mentorship and industry exposure – is hosting an informal gathering to help its 2010 Reach Filmmakers fill open crew positions for their short fiction and nonfiction films. Some of the positions we are looking to fill include: gaffers, ADs, sound mixers, editors among many others. The films shoot in the coming weeks/months. Compensation for all crew positions depends on level of experience.
THE REACH FILM FELLOWSHIP (RFF): A program of Cinereach, RFF is a rigorous, annual program in which four filmmakers complete a short film with a socially relevant theme. Each receives a $5,000 grant, production resources, workshops, industry exposure, and personalized mentorship. Past mentors and advisors have included: So Yong Kim, Edet Belzberg, Ellen Kuras, Nicole Kassell, Albert Maysles, Rachel Grady, Jeremy Kipp Walker, and others. Annie Waldman, a 2008 Fellow, premiered her RFF short at Sundance 2009 and it airs on PBS this month. Nicholas Bruckman’s RFF film screened at Rooftop Films, and his follow-up feature “La Americana” went to over 30 festivals, winning 7 awards.
