2018 NEW ORLEANS FILM FESTIVAL EMERGING VOICES APPLICATION
Application Deadline: AUGUST 17, 2018
The Emerging Voices Mentorship program, an initiative of the New Orleans Film Society, was created in 2014 and founded on the principle that in order to create a more diverse storytelling landscape, filmmakers of color in Louisiana need greater access to gatekeepers. The program strives to empower the local community as well as to promote the unique perspectives and cultures of Louisiana to the rest of the country, and the world.

The Emerging Voices Mentorship program is an initiative designed to support directors, producers and writers of color residing in Louisiana. If you are not part of this targeted demographic, email us at info@neworleansfilmsociety.org to find out what other programs you might qualify to take part in.

The Emerging Voices Mentorship program is open to directors, producers and writers. Applicants must have a narrative or documentary project (shorts, features or web-based), or a new media project (VR/360, Installation, etc.) in the development/pre-production stage.

Selected filmmakers receive a complimentary pass to the 2018 New Orleans Film Festival and are paired with a Film Industry leader during the festival who will act as a mentor through a series of 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. They are also invited to Emerging Voices-specific roundtables and other professional development events during the festival and year-round.
