The program is rigorous and rewarding; it includes selected readings, special meetings with guest artists and other professionals, and smaller discussions with other Fellows.

All majors are welcome; we select a diverse array of students from throughout the U.S., as well as internationally. We look for students who have the capacity to interact in both small and large groups, and be willing to share their passion for film.

Philadelphia Foundation Fellowships
Through a generous grant from the Philadelphia Foundation, fellowships are now available for qualified Philadelphia residents to attend the 55th Robert Flaherty Film Seminar. Awards cover transportation to the Seminar and the full registration fee, which includes all lodging, meals, Seminar screenings, activities and functions for the week. Fellowships are open to both students and professionals (please mark "Philadelphia Fellowship" on our application form). Previous fellowship recipients are eligible for one additional fellowship after a one-year hiatus.
Fellowship awardees are asked to assist with various work assignments during the Seminar, from assistance with administrative needs and hospitality to audio recording Seminar discussions. These tasks will be kept to a minimum so as not to interfere with your participation in the Seminar.
At the end of the program all fellowship awardees are required to submit a final report about their experience.
