About Jubilee Project’s Fellowship
Beginning with 2 months of remote pre-production and culminating in an intensive 14-day (July 31-Aug 14) fellowship in Los Angeles, Jubilee Project mentors and teaches a small group of twelve filmmakers to hone their craft and use film for social good. In previous years, our Fellows have produced narrative short films as well as 50-people-1-question style short films, and this year Fellows will be producing short documentaries.
