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.​
