Our Documentary Producers Fellowship - Nominations due this Friday

September 21, 2016

fellowship producing documentary producers applications


We're currently open for nominations for the 2016-2017 Impact Partners Documentary Producers Fellowship. Last year, we created the fellowship to offer support and mentorship to emerging producers, and we selected 6 talented documentary filmmakers (find out more about our inaugural class here).

This year, we are expanding the program to include 10 fellows. We're accepting nominations from documentary filmmakers and industry who have worked with promising producers eager for mentorship. The deadline for nominations is this Friday, September 23rd. 

Over the course of this year, the 2015-16 fellows have been participating in intimate workshops with veteran producers and industry experts. Looking forward to next year's fellowship, we asked a couple of the current fellows to reflect on their experience so far:

Pamela Ryan:

"When Impact Partners invited me to join their '15 / '16 fellowship, I understood that as part of the year, I'd be mentored by those associated with the program. What I didn't realize was that both I and the other fellowship participants would really be embraced as part of the Impact Partners family, welcomed, befriended and nurtured by both the tremendous core team at IP as well as their incredible network."

Katia Maguire:

"It’s been a great honor to be part of the inaugural class of the Impact Partners Emerging Documentary Producers Fellowship.  Not only have I had the opportunity to meet award-winning experienced producers in the field who have generously shared their knowledge and insight with us on the mysterious and often underestimated art of producing, but I’ve been able to foster relationships with fellow emerging producers like myself, sharing information and experience, expanding my support network in the industry, and hopefully planting the seeds for future collaborations."


We have been so impressed with our first class of fellows' thoughtful engagement, support for each other, and commitment to their craft of documentary filmmaking. We're looking forward to finding next year's group of fellows and continuing this rewarding program.
