The Diverse Women in Media Residency Lab
NALIP's Diverse Women in Media Residency Lab at ARC (Artist Retreat Center)
Selected Fellows will be invited to the Vermont ARC (Artist Retreat Center) OCT. 3-11 where 8-12 diverse women filmmakers will workshop their documentaries, narrative scripts, or digital projects with distinguished mentors. Within this supportive environment, fellows present their work, participate in focused mentoring sessions, and connect and network for support and project accountability, creating a growing community of artists working together to increase their own successful project completion, and to raise the voices and success rate of women of color filmmakers in the media industry.
WORK DETAILS: Each artist will have time and space to work independently during the residency. Each project will be workshopped by the group, as well as receiving individual mentorship. Projects most suited to this residency include documentaries or series in progress, and/or scripts in progress. Projects in the development stage will be less competitive but are encouraged to apply. Each artist is assigned a quiet private space for work, and is not to be disturbed during the day, although all are welcome to gather in common areas or enjoy walks in the private woods or to the nearby waterfall, to dip in the pond on the grounds, or walk to the nearby river or waterfall. A few group outings will be organized for those wishing to explore the area.
