Film Independent has selected 30 filmmakers for Project Involve, its signature program dedicated to fostering the careers of filmmakers from communities traditionally underrepresented in the film industry.

Project Involve, which celebrated its 20th anniversary last year, runs annually for nine months. During the program, participants create short films, receive one-on-one film industry mentors, access to production-based master workshops taught by top film professionals, career development training and industry networking opportunities.

Upon completion, participants become Film Independent Fellows, receiving year-round support including access to Film Independent’s annual film education offerings, on-staff Filmmaker Advisor and the LA Film Festival. (More info is here.)

For the third consecutive year, Sony is supplying the Diversity Fellowship in Project Involve, which provides year-round support to one of the participating filmmakers.

The 2014 Project Involve participants were selected based on the quality of their projects, their passion, vision, talent, and commitment to pursuing a career in the film industry. This year’s filmmakers are:
