Artist Programs

The Jacob Burns Film Center developed Creative Culture, our roster of artist programs, with a mission to champion diverse voices and foster a thriving community of artists from our local region, across the United States, and around the world. With generous support from our funders, Creative Culture provides accessible, inclusive, and impactful fellowship and residency opportunities for filmmakers.

Creative Culture remains committed to its guiding philosophy of inclusion and collaboration. The true testament of this program’s value is in its reputation as a community where filmmakers care deeply about one another’s projects and, more importantly, about one another.
