2019 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar Fellowship

Type: Awards, Grants, Fellowships [View all]
Posted by: The Flaherty
Deadline: Wed, February 20th, 2019

Each year the Flaherty offers fellowships to emerging and mid-career filmmakers, media professionals and students. The fellowship program is led by a Fellows Coordinator, who has attended previous Flaherty Seminars, and is designed to further your knowledge of cinema through participation in an array of unique activities. The program is rigorous and rewarding; Fellows arrive on campus a day before the Seminar begins to learn about the history of the Seminar, take part in a master class and a curatorial workshop, discuss pre-assigned readings relating to the theme, and watch and discuss clips of each other’s films, by way of an informal Fellows’ film screening. Besides interacting with the group at large, Flaherty fellows also take part in private meetings and discussions with the featured artists and other special guests in attendance. Fellows will be able to return home with creative inspiration, experiences and connections, which will aid them in furthering their own careers and artistic endeavors.

ELIGIBILITY/CRITERIA We search for applicants who have demonstrated achievement in their profession or field of study, or who show potential to be an emerging talent. In the required essay, applicants should effectively convey reasons why they would like to attend the Seminar and also how they feel they can contribute to the event. All Seminar attendees are encouraged to participate in discussions and the overall discourse, and we want to know what you can add.

In order to receive a fellowship, you MUST be available to arrive on campus by Friday, June 14, 2019 at 5 pm for the start of the fellowship program and stay through the entire Seminar which ends on Friday, June 21, 2019 at noon. If you have received a fellowship to attend the Seminar in the past, you are ineligible to apply (exception applies to Philadelphia Fellowships).

Please note, you DO NOT need to fill in the Seminar Registration form at this time. If you do not receive a Fellowship but you still wish to attend the Seminar there will be limited space available on a first come first served basis.

Wednesday, February 20, 2019 5:00pm (EST) is the deadline for all fellowship applications. Everyone will be notified by early April 2019.
