The WeOwnTV Filmmaker Fellowship
The WeOwnTV Filmmaker Fellowship is a film fund and professional development program supporting the production of independent documentaries directed by West African filmmakers.
This year we are accepting applications from filmmakers who are living and working in Ghana, Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone and are also citizens of those countries. The program provides filmmakers with funding for their project, creative labs, one-on-one mentoring, professional development workshops and networking opportunities.
The Fellowship is made possible through generous support from the Bertha Foundation, Jonathan Logan Family Foundation and Global Giving Foundation.
