documentary producers producing workshops support

...nominate them for the 2018 Impact Partners Documentary Producers Fellowhip!

We're currently accepting nominations for our 3rd class of IP Documentary Producers Fellows. We will select 10 fellows to participate in 6 workshops with vet producers, directors and industry experts. Each session explores a different aspect of film production facing young producers today. The workshops cover film finance, festival and sales strategy, the distribution landscape, legal issues and more. Each fellow will be awarded a $1000 stipend. 

We created the fellowship to support documentary producers. We want to hear from the documentary community — who are the producers who are creative, resilient and eager to grow? Who would benefit from mentorship and becoming a member of a new network of documentary producers? Nominations are welcome from documentary filmmakers and other key crew members who have worked with an eligible producer. A short nomination form is now available here. If you know someone you would like to nominate, please complete and submit the form. The deadline for all nominations is Wednesday, November 8th.  

Once we receives a nomination, we'll contact the fellowship candidate with an application form. The form is 3 pages long and includes questions about the candidate's work as a producer and why they are interested in the fellowship. The final deadline for nominated producers' applications is Wednesday, November 29th.
