Diverse Voices In Docs

For the second year in a row, the Chicago based documentary film company Kartemquin Films (The interrupters, Hoop Dreams, The Trials of Muhammad Ali and the upcoming ’63 Boycott) will launch their professional development program aimed at nurturing new Chicago documentary filmmakers of color.

The program, called Diverse Voices in Docs, will be done, as it was last year,  in association with the Community Film Workshop in Chicago, with the purpose of mentoring 20 emerging documentary filmmakers over the course of 6 months, as they work on their respective projects.

In addition, the first class of graduating fellows from the Diverse Voices program will be celebrated at a free, public event at the University of Chicago’s Logan Center of the Arts located at 915 E. 60th starting at 6:30PM on Weds October 30th.

The graduation celebration will also function as the official launch for applications to the 2014 program, as well as a networking and information-gathering event for veteran and emerging Chicago filmmakers.

According to the program ”at the core of the Diverse Voices in Docs’ program are six intensive three-hour workshops held monthly at the Community Film Workshop, with creative advice provided by Kartemquin Films’ world-class staff and associates. Each session provides practical skill-enrichment designed to help incubate the attendee’s next documentary project, as well as connecting them to an expert community, new collaborators, and a wider network of funders and distributors."

Workshop sessions will also focus on applied learning and honing skills in areas such as fundraising, storytelling, production techniques, distribution and marketing.

Any applicants for 2014 should be filmmakers who have played a principal role in a completed production (producer, writer, director, editor, etc.) and have experience or work history that demonstrates their commitment to social issue documentaries.

The application deadline for Diverse Voices is on Friday December 13th. You can find more information, as well as reserve a seat at the graduation ceremony HERE.
