FOR STUDENTS OF BARNARD COLLEGE ONLY

The Media Center Emerging Filmmaker Mentorship Program is a semester-long program that will focus on providing creative support and funding to undergraduate Barnard filmmakers as they produce their own short film.

The program is seeking ambitious, visionary students who have an idea for a film, and the drive to get it made. Our goal is to offer resources to populations traditionally marginalized in media production settings, including women, people of color, and those with financial limitations.

Program resources will include:

-Personalized mentorship through one-on-one meetings throughout the semester
-Assistance with the creative process from pre-production to post-production
-Feedback on project progress and script drafts
-Logistical support with schedules, budgets, etc.
-Technical training on advanced production equipment and editing programs
-Funds as needed-- Each selected project will receive up to $1500 in production funds.

Applicants can apply as individuals or as small creative teams, and must meet the following requirements:

-Undergraduate student
-Currently attending Barnard (graduating seniors are eligible)
-Have a strong idea for a short film that they're passionate about creating
-Have a need for support in order to realize their vision
