Bay Area Video Coalition is accepting applications for the MediaMaker Fellowship. The MediaMaker Fellowship is devoted to supporting documentary filmmakers grappling with critical issues of our time through the use of bold cinematic language and innovative impact strategies.

They are seeking candidates who have the potential to impact our understanding of how documentaries can transform the world, as well as expanding the quality of the art of nonfiction.

This ten-month-long program supports the development of documentary projects that are nearing post-production, and includes $10,000 distributed to each Fellow over the course of the Fellowship as well as professional mentorship and strategy sessions focused on documentary storytelling, career sustainability, fundraising, distribution, and more.

The project should be non-commercial, primarily documentary or nonfiction in nature, and should have the potential for social impact.

BAVC will select eight Fellows; half Bay Area-based and half from elsewhere in the United States. At this time the program cannot support Fellows who are primarily based outside of the U.S.
