The Fellows Program

Creating a significant impact in the entertainment industry is realized not only through networking and building key relationships, but also through innovative educational programs.

The Blackhouse Foundation and BET Networks are partnered in sponsoring ten (10) current MFA Fellows from schools across the country to intern with the Blackhouse Foundation during the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. This is the 4th Blackhouse Fellows class.

The Blackhouse Fellows Program offers an excellent opportunity for fellows at prominent film schools across the country to get hands-on experience at one of the world’s premiere film festivals.

Fellows assist the Blackhouse Foundation with events and programming throughout the festival.

Our curriculum gives fellows the opportunity to:

  • Gain a keen understanding of the film business;
  • Interact with experienced and seasoned filmmakers;
  • Get insight on the festival submission, selection and distribution process;
  • Learn about future trends in the industry;
  • Collaborate with other future leaders in the industry.

Teaching to Produce Mastery

We are committed to the development of future filmmakers, producers, and behind-the-scenes professionals.

Our fellows have the opportunity to connect with industry professionals and be exposed to the future of filmmaking through the course of their work and during specially designed interactions with leading artists, executives, and innovators.

We aim to cultivate the talents of our fellows with our unique learn-by-doing approach.

For the second consecutive year, our fellows program is generously sponsored by BET Networks™.

Applications for the 2020 Fellows Class will be available Fall 2019.
