NATIVe Fellows Programme

Winda Film Festival and UTS are excited to partner with the NATIVe Fellows Programme

 

Winda Film Festival and UTS are excited to partner with the NATIVe Fellows Programme to bring a career defining opportunity for Indigenous producers to attend the European Film Market with 1-2 *market-ready feature film projects. The programme is the first of its kind being offered through Winda Film Festival and UTS.

Artistic and Festival Director Pauline Clague says, “The NATIVe Fellows Programme is an important partnership with other festivals that have a strong Indigenous support background. Winda is excited to help provide this opportunity for producers to be supported at a market that is world-renowned.”

The NATIVe Fellows programme is a rare fellowship/lab opportunity exclusive to Indigenous feature film producers or producing directors to have their project(s) promoted through the NATIVe Indigenous Cinema Stand and to participate in a curated programme for the producer to make the most of their time at the EFM.

The NATIVe Fellows programme will bring together a small group of Indigenous producers from the Stand Partners’ regional areas whose EFM activities will be enhanced through specific training, meetings, networking events, panels, and social activities to orient and help them take full advantage of the EFM and the Berlinale.

The Fellows will be overseen by a dedicated, Berlin-based coordinator with expertise in the EFM who will work collaboratively to develop strategic plans and goals with each producer. NATIVe Fellows will be international, with one selected from each Stand Partner region.

Successful applicants will receive travel, accommodation, and cost of one (1) market badge covered by the supporting regional Stand Partner.
