North Star Fellowship
June 28, 2021
Taking place during the Camden International Film Festival, the North Star Fellowship supports five early-career filmmakers from underrepresented backgrounds, providing a focused environment with time to reflect on their artistic process and build a community of support that will sustain their creative work. Following the long weekend in Maine, Fellows will participate in 1:1 meetings with funders, distributors and other industry decision makers. In 2020, these meetings included representatives from Sundance, SFFILM, Firelight, POV, ITVS, NBC, Field of Vision, Black Star, Hot Docs, Netflix, Hulu, NEON and dozens of other major platforms.
