Do you have the next Nate Parker or Ava DuVernay in the making? Here’s an incredible opportunity for them to learn how to write, direct and edit their own short films under the tutelage of top filmmakers and industry experts over the course of 30 months…for free.
Ghetto Film School LA is a ground-breaking initiative that brings students ages 14-18 years with a free, rigorous 30-month pre-professional immersion in cinematic storytelling and production training. They meet full-time for two consecutive summers and afterschool/Saturdays during the school year.
During the second phase of the program, students complete an animation project, film a commercial, create a web-series, and create a thesis project on location in a foreign country. Past Fellows have traveled to Paris, Uganda, Brazil, Stockholm, and Shanghai.
Deadline to apply is March 15, 2016.
