The Flaherty is currently offering two Fellowships which provide economic support to applicants interested in attending the Seminar: Professional Development and Student. All fellowships are highly competitive. Preference will be given to first-time Seminar attendees. If you have previously received a Flaherty Seminar Fellowship, you are not eligible to apply.
Each year the Flaherty offers fellowships to students and emerging and mid-career filmmakers and film professionals. The fellowship program is led by an academic who has attended previous Flaherty Seminars and is designed to further your knowledge of cinema through participation in an array of unique activities. Besides interacting with the group at large, Flaherty fellows take part in private meetings and discussions with the featured artists and other special guests in attendance, including programmers, writers, and academics. The program is rigorous and rewarding; Fellows arrive on campus a day before the Seminar begins to learn about the history of the Seminar, discuss pre-assigned readings relating to the theme, and watch and discuss each other’s films, by way of an informal Fellows film screening. Fellows will be able to return home with creative inspiration, experiences and connections, which will aid them in furthering their own careers and artistic endeavors.
