TWN Production Workshop Alumni

TWN Production Workshop Alumni Established in December 1967 as Newsreel, an activist filmmaker collective, this NY group grew to become a network with chapters across the US. Its different chapters produced and distributed short 16mm films covering the anti-war and women's movements, Civil and human rights movements, getting unique access to such groups as the Black Panther Party and the Young Lords Party. Newsreel’s activism attracted many artists who became well known filmmakers - Norman Fruchter, Susan Robeson, Robert Kramer, Christine Choy, Tami Gold, Allan Siegel and Deborah Shaffer, among others.

#Filmmakers

In 2019, #BlackStar Film Festival will host the inaugural BlackStar Pitch. Filmmakers will pitch their projects in front of a live audience and a panel of judges to receive feedback and have an opportunity to win a cash prize of $1,000.
This first BlackStar Pitch will be focused on feature documentary projects and is open to any filmmaker who identifies as a person of color.

BlackStar Pitch will showcase a group of 8 filmmakers, who will be selected based on their applications due July 21. The filmmakers will pitch their works-in-progress to a distinguished panel of funders, executives, distributors and producers on Thursday August 1 in Philadelphia. The panelists will choose the best pitch, to be announced during the awards ceremony on Sunday August 4. Each pitch will last 7 minutes (including video reel) followed by 10 minutes of constructive feedback.

Open Society Fellowship

The #OpenSociety Fellowship deadline is approaching! Apply by February 4th!

The Open Society Fellowship was founded in 2008 to support individuals pursuing innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges. The fellowship funds work that will enrich public understanding of those challenges and stimulate far-reaching and probing conversations within the Open Society Foundations and in the world.

Open Society fellows produce work outputs of their own choosing, such as a book, journalistic or academic articles, art projects, a series of convenings, etc. In addition, fellowship cohorts may develop a joint work product of some sort. Fellowship staff will assist cohorts in brainstorming possible outputs if needed.

The Open Society Fellowship is designed to support individuals pursuing innovative and unconventional approaches to fundamental open society challenges.

Solange Saves the Day: Indie Filmmakers Break Down Their Approaches to Engaging Audiences in Unexpected Places

“People want to be involved and its difficult because as filmmakers our instinct is to protect our process and protect [our] film, and not have us distracted,” said Ford. “But the truth is, if you finish your film and then look to build your audience, it’s too late.” #YanceFord (#twnworkshop graduate)

Find out how Solange changed Yance Ford’s approach to using social media, Flavio Alves raised over $100,000 on eBay, and Eliza Hittman laid meaningful roots through college campus screenings.
