New Angle Fellows supports emerging documentary filmmakers who are creating their own work and hoping to get to the next step in their filmmaking journey. This cohort of six members will get the opportunity to learn skills and knowledge from more advanced filmmakers. Participants attend two Thursday evening sessions a month to discuss their films and topics such as cinematography, funding, and distribution. Guest artists and funders will visit to give participants tips on how to succeed in the local industry.

Participants receive a $3000 stipend to support them in producing their documentary. This program is made possible by a grant from the Jerome Foundation and by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Doc U alum are highly encouraged to apply, though you must have created work beyond the Doc U program.
