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.

We are now accepting applications for Fall 2021 Creative Culture fellowships. Applications will be accepted through June 14, 2021. Please see the application guidelines for more details.

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.

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
