MIT OpenDocLab & BPMplus Remote Fellowship (Sept 2020-Jan 2021)

A semester-long, remote fellowship for one Black filmmaker or storyteller, who is developing a documentary using AR, AI, IOT, VR, etc.

MIT Open Documentary Lab, MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology, and Black Public Media just launched a remote, 4-month fellowship for Black filmmakers, journalists, creative technologists, and artists, who are developing a documentary or nonfiction project using emerging technologies (such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, or robotics) or using ‘old tech’ (projections, multichannel video, console video games, VFX, 3D, etc.) in new and inventive ways.

One applicant will be chosen for the Fellowship.

Previous emerging tech production experience is not required, but having at least one high-tech or frontier tech project on your resume is strongly encouraged. Black creatives outside the United States are welcome to apply. Shoot your shot!

RSVP to this Eventbrite page to receive updates about the application process.

Apply by 11 PM EST on Aug 16, 2020.

The virtual fellowship runs Sept 8, 2020, to Jan. 29, 2021.
