Spotlight Shorts Series is a program launched in fall 2020 to support beginner/emerging documentary filmmakers.
Applications are now open until Oct. 16. Please fill out this form to apply. If you have questions email Theng at email@example.com.
In this program teams of three or four will create a short documentary on a community issue. We will have two groups, so we are looking for six to eight participants. SPNN will pair each group with a local media maker to help mentor the team.
Each team will get eight weeks to complete the project. You must attend each training session. Each participant will be given a $400 stipend. Topics may include issues around housing, refugees, policing, or environmental issues.
This program will meet on Mondays from 6-9 starting November 7.
Spotlight Shorts is made possible 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 and the National Endowment for the Arts.
