Creative Culture Fellowship Program

Creative Culture provides 10-month long fellowship experiences for emerging filmmakers to produce short film projects in a collaborative community. Fellows participate in weekly sessions at the JBFC’s Media Arts Lab with a cohort of peers and receive access to mentorship, stipend support, production equipment, post-production facilities and software, and the JBFC’s industry network.

Participating fellows produce two short films in a collaborative community of eight filmmakers working together in a senior thesis-like experience. Fellows support each other through table reads, industry workshops, rough-cut reviews, and skill shares.

We are currently accepting applications for Spring 2022 Creative Culture fellowships through December 15th.

Each fellowship offers:

  • Participation in two semesters of Creative Culture’s fellowship program
  • Stipend support for each semester
  • Access to professional production equipment, including lenses provided by Zeiss
  • 24/7 access to workspace and post-production facilities at the JBFC Media Arts Lab
  • Mentorship from JBFC staff, visiting filmmakers, and industry guests
  • Peer support of other fellows within the program
