Our friends at the Video Consortium have an exciting new project for first-time feature documentarians!
In partnership with DOC NYC, Video Consortium and DOC NYC are excited to announce the 2021 Storytelling Incubator. This global mentorship initiative provides 15 emerging documentary filmmakers or video journalists from underrepresented perspectives with hands-on creative consultation and professional guidance from established industry voices through a unique year-round mentorship program.
The aim of each mentorship pairing is to offer mentees unique access to peer support as they launch their careers and to disrupt historical barriers faced by early-career filmmakers seeking networking, creative advice, and industry knowledge. Any nonfiction filmmaker, from anywhere in the world, may apply! Those who are not yet VC members may waive the network’s submission fee to join.
Apply here, and spread the word! Applications close July 31, 2021.
