Indie Memphis is excited to announce the return of the Black Filmmaker Screenwriting Residency and Fellowship! Each opportunity is intended for under-represented artists in filmmaking to develop bold storytelling and connect with fellow writers, artists, and other industry professionals in Memphis.
The Residency brings a filmmaker to Memphis for two months to work on a screenplay, supported by guidance, mentorship, and a $7,500 cash stipend. The Fellowship is a similar opportunity exclusively for Memphis residents.
The chosen recipients will be expected to work exclusively on developing their narrative feature film script in the months of October and November and have a completed screenplay by the end of 2023.
