Spotlight Documentary Residency: Call for Applications due May 31, 2024

22 Mar 2024 1:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Smithsonian American Women's History Museum invites individuals to co-create a more inclusive record of American history by shaping how stories from communities are told. The Spotlight Documentary will support teams of professional filmmakers and community builders to create short form, limited documentary series that share histories of notable American women and girls who are well-known to their communities but have not been recognized or celebrated in mainstream narratives about American history.

Reimagining a conventional residency, a cohort of four teams will receive $50,000 in production funding, interdisciplinary mentorship, and a national platform for their completed work, while retaining full ownership rights to the series. The residency will take place from mid-August 2024 through mid-February 2025. Selected teams will live and work in place and must complete their series in that time frame.

More details about program requirements are available on the Spotlight Program Page and detailed information about how to prepare and submit an application, including selection process and criteria, and templates to ease application prep, can be found on the Apply Page.  Deadline May 31, 2024. Please direct any questions to: spotlightwomenshistory@si.edu
