APPLICATIONS DUE: Open Signal Labs 2020 Black Film Fellowship

Open Signal Labs' Black Filmmaker Fellowship allows six Portland-based Black filmmakers each year to immerse themselves in a creative environment that avoids the biases of extra-cultural critique, while fostering an environment of trust and experimentation. 

Applications for Open Signal Labs' 2020 Black Filmmaker Fellowship are due at 11:59pm on December 20.

Open Signal Labs' Black Filmmaker Fellowship is a rare opportunity for social exploration and deep career development at Open Signal. It allows six Portland-based Black filmmakers each year to immerse themselves in a creative environment that avoids the biases of extra-cultural critique, while fostering an environment of trust and experimentation.

Open Signal Labs is an incubator for new stories at Open Signal, a media arts center based in Northeast Portland. 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.

Part professional development program and part content development studio, the fellowship was piloted in 2018-19. It is designed to help filmmakers advance their careers and to develop unique and high quality cinematic projects. 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. Collectively, the fellows’ work will explore a new creative operating model, which seeks to advance the culture of the industry at large.
