About the Accelerator Lab
The Accelerator Lab is focused on identifying and supporting a diverse
group of women nonfiction directors who are first and second-time
filmmakers, with the aim of helping them navigate the documentary film
world, build toward sustainable, successful careers, and tell the most
powerful and impactful stories they can. Ten first and second-time women
documentary filmmakers will each receive up to $35,000 in grant funding
for the production of their feature-length film, to be developed over
the course of this 12-month program.
By contributing to the production and mentorship of
these films and filmmakers, we seek to advance our broader goals:
increasing the number of women directors making documentary films and
facilitating a greater opportunity for art and storytelling to make a
measurable impact on important social issues.
