The UnionDocs Summer Intensive is a 5 week program for a select group of emerging filmmakers from the US and abroad. The program consists of screenings, seminar discussions, production instruction, professional development sessions, critique, mentorship, many guest artist master classes, and weekly visits to relevant sites around New York City. Twelve to fourteen applicants are selected for the program on the basis of their past experience and the strength of a current documentary proposal or concept. Previous work in documentary is not required, but a demonstrated commitment to independent creative work is necessary. Through the Intensive, participants work to develop their ideas, formulate practical plans, learn technical skills, and assemble a package of descriptive materials that will help them pursue further support for their project.
Early Bird Deadline for our Summer Documentary Intensive ends Monday, March 2!
