We are an academic leadership program focusing on 3 core elements:
1. Educating, Empowering & Impacting the lives of our fellows.
2. Creating awareness for our subject matters.
3. Inspiring change in our world.
How It Works
Each summer, we select a team of "fellows", who consist of talented post-graduate, graduate and undergraduate students, looking to add a practical application to their formal education. Each fellow is paired with award winning mentors for the term of the fellowship to create a documentary film focused on a single issue, cause or story facing our world today.
Our fellows face a wide range of challenges that personally and professionally invoke passion, character and leadership. Framed by our values, passions and ideals, our fellows blend their interdisciplinary backgrounds to best capture and express their findings, experiences and outcomes through film and the arts.
“WE BELIEVE THAT THE FUTURE OF PROTECTION (ENVIRONMENTAL,
CULTURAL, SOCIAL, GOVERNMENTAL & ALL OTHER FORMS)
must CONTINUALLY BE inspired, empowered and FUELED BY NEW GENERATIONS OF STORYTELLERS”
