2017 Emerging Voices Application
THE DEADLINE FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY HAS PASSED. WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE SELECTED MENTEES SHORTLY.


The Emerging Voices Mentorship program, an initiative of the New Orleans Film Society, was created in 2014 and founded on the principle that to create a more diverse storytelling landscape, filmmakers of color in Louisiana need greater access to gatekeepers.

Applicants include filmmakers with narrative or documentary projects (shorts, features or web-based), and new media projects in the development/pre-production stage. Once selected, during the annual New Orleans Film Festival, selected filmmakers are paired with a Film Industry leader who acts as a mentor through one-on-one meetings. Mentees also participate in short intensive meetings with other industry professionals during the NOFF Industry Exchange to pitch their projects and build further connections.

The program works to empower the local community as well as to promote the unique perspectives and cultures created in Louisiana to the rest of the country, and the world.

Emerging Voices is made possible by the support of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the National Endowment for the Arts.
