The FOX | HBCU Media Alliance (“FHMA”), which nurtures and promotes a growing and dynamic pipeline of talent from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) for executive and creative professional opportunities across the 21st Century Fox entertainment businesses, in partnership with Film Independent, has announced a call for FHMA member applications to the 2016-2017 Project Involve/FHMA Film Fellowship.
Project Involve and the FHMA partnership aim to augment the creative pipeline of filmmakers from the vast Historically Black Colleges and University community and ensure that more films by diverse filmmakers are produced and distributed.
Project Involve is Film Independent’s signature filmmaker mentorship program, which fosters the careers of filmmakers from communities traditionally underrepresented in the film industry. The program, which runs from October through June, selects talented and highly motivated filmmakers who embody diversity, innovation, and uniqueness of vision.
All verified Fox|HBCU Media Alliance members (membership is open to HBCU affiliated students, alumni, faculty and staff, as well as, “friends of” HBCUs) are eligible to apply for acceptance to Project Involve as the FHMA Film Fellow.
To apply, log on to: http://talent-dev.filmindependent.org/ and select the “non-member” section under the Member Status tab.
All application fees for Fox|HBCU Media Alliance members will be waived. To receive a waiver code email: firstname.lastname@example.org prior to completing the application.
The deadline for applications for FHMA members is June 20, 2016 and should be submitted directly to Film Independent and Project Involve as indicated on the application.
The 2016-2017 Project Involve/FHMA Fellow will be selected by Film Independent on or about August 31, 2016. The selected FHMA applicant will be notified of the acceptance by an authorized representative of the Fox/HBCU Media Alliance on or about September 15, 2016.
