Accountability Lab Zimbabwe is offering a Film Fellowship
Are you an aspiring impact filmmaker? Are you passionate about Zimbabwe and issues of equal rights and access to economic, social and political opportunities for its citizens? Do you have a passion for film but lack the training or means to tell the experiences of your community? Do you have a certain story from your community that you would like to tell or amplify?
The Film Fellowship is an initiative of the Accountability Lab Zimbabwe implemented in partnership with Magamba Network that allows young people to gain skills in storytelling and film making. The Fellowship is looking for 10 aspiring creatives who want to make films about social accountability issues. The Fellowship is a year long program that will support participants to refine their skills, with mentoring and support from industry experts. Creatives are expected to participate in workshops and events, and will create films telling Zimbabwean stories about accountability and social justice. Productions will be screened across the country as well as at a final Film Festival at the end of the program. This opportunity is open to young people, aged 18 – 35, across Zimbabwe.
You must answer the following questions in either text or video:
- Tell us about yourself and why you want to become a filmmaker;
- What do you hope to gain from the Film Fellowship?;
- Tell us about a prevalent social issue affecting your community and how you would tell this story in film. Why is your story important to you?
