The Sisters in Cinema Documentary Fellowship is a career-long support program for emerging Black women and gender non-conforming non-fiction mediamakers.

The program is a creative and career-based fellowship for directors who are working on their first or second short or feature-length non-fiction film. Three to six directors will be selected to participate. Program participants will receive support through a grant for their project, creative and career development workshops and coaching, and online and in-person check-ins with the cohort and the Sisters in Cinema team. 


The application for the 2025 cohort will open June 2024!
