Fellowship FAQ

Here are some of the Frequently Asked Questions we've received about the Fellowship's application process. If you have any other questions not included here, please email us at fellowship@impactpartnersfilm.com.

When will the workshops be?

As the workshops are dependent on our guests' availability, we will not have a confirmed schedule in advance. The first workshop will be in late summer or early fall of 2021.

Will this year's workshops be virtual or in-person?

This year's workshops will be a combination of virtual and in-person. There will be a stipend to cover travel for the in-person workshops.

Can I apply with my producing partner?

While we welcome producers who have worked together to apply for the same year's cohort, we consider all applicants as individuals. We require individual nomination and application forms for all applicants. 

Do I need to be nominated first to apply?

No. Applicants no longer need to be nominated before applying. However, they will be required to have someone submit a recommendation form on their behalf. The recommendation and the application can be submitted in either order.

Does it help me to receive more than one recommendation?

We only require one recommendation per applicant. However, you are welcome to ask additional colleagues to send in supplementary recommendations and we will take them into consideration when evaluating your application. 

Am I eligible to apply if my only documentary was a short?

No. In order to be eligible, the applicant must have at least one completed feature or series project. 

What if my only film is incomplete?

In order to be eligible, the applicant must have at least one completed feature or series project. For the purposes of this application, we consider 'completed' to mean that your project has premiered for a public audience (ie. premiered at a festival, been released by a distributor) or is currently prepared to do so (ie. final post production is complete and a premiere is imminent). If you have a nearly completed feature or series project that doesn't quite meet these qualifications, please provide a thorough explanation in your application.
