Description

Brave New Films champions social justice issues by using media to inspire, empower, motivate, engage and teach civic participation that makes a difference. Our goal is to support the active civic engagement of an informed citizenry by calling attention to important issues through non-partisan social media production and our ingenious multi-platform distribution network.


The Brave New Fellows Program offers social justice advocates from communities of color and/or economically marginalized communities a one year, paid opportunity to work with Brave New Films and learn how to create and distribute media that makes a difference. 


ABOUT THE FELLOWSHIP


By working alongside experienced staff, fellows build practical skills in digital storytelling, production, post-production, campaign strategies, outreach, research, and social media. Fellows spend the year in one of three areas: post-production, community outreach, or digital distribution. The fellowship equips activists to use film to support activism, and prepares them for jobs in social justice advocacy, media, and filmmaking.


To complement the on-the-job learning, fellows also meet and network with film directors, activists, journalists, politicians and organizers, and they receive training in camera operation, database management, fundraising, and more.
