Applications are now being accepted for Open Signal Labs’ 2020 Black Film Fellowship!
The fellowship allows six Portland-based Black filmmakers to immerse themselves in a creative environment that avoids the biases of extra-cultural critique, while fostering an environment of trust and experimentation.
Over the course of the 10-month program, fellows will create new works independently and as a group, challenging themselves and others to aspire to the highest standards.
Labs and its fellowship were created with a clear awareness of emerging opportunities for African-Americans in film and television, and the critical social and political importance of the Black perspective in all areas of storytelling.
Applications are due by 11:59pm PST on December 20.
