About the Fellowship

The Impact Partners Documentary Producers Fellows will participate in three development workshops to be held in New York City, guided by guest luminaries — eminent documentary producers and industry experts with distinct areas of knowledge. Each session explores a different aspect of film production facing young producers today. The workshops cover film finance, festival and sales strategy, the distribution landscape, legal workshops and other critical topics. During each session, luminaries work closely with each fellow to choose topics and issues with immediate relevancy to their current work, offering hands-on advice, strategies and best practices. This year’s fellowship will include two 3.5-hour session and one all-day intensive workshop, all held in New York City. Each fellow is awarded $1,000.

Guest luminaries that have participated in past fellowship workshops include: Alexis Bloom, Lori Cheatle, Victoria Cook, Heidi Ewing & Rachel Grady, Kristin Feeley, Howard Gertler, Julie Goldman, Andrew Herwitz, Amy Hobby, Tabitha Jackson, Beth Levison, Justine Nagan, Marilyn Ness, Thom Powers, Eric Sloss, and Eden Wurmfeld. The guests for the upcoming fellowship will be confirmed at a later date. The workshops are moderated by Impact Partners’ Co-Executive Director Jenny Raskin.
