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.
