Applications now open for 2016 Diverse Voices in Docs

On Sunday, October 11th, the 2015 fellows of the Diverse Voices in Docs (DVID) program celebrated their graduation from the esteemed program at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts on the University of Chicago campus. Now in its third year, DVID aims to help filmmakers of color increase their skillset and network as well as provides them with a venue to screen their works in progress and aid in completing their own documentary projects.

Head over to our Facebook page to view photos from the launch of Diverse Voices in Docs, our new professional development program from documentary makers. The snaps were taken last week at Community Film Workshop, our partner on the program. Thanks to all who came to the event and shared ideas and feedback with us. The informal gathering confirmed that there was great enthusiasm for the program and its goal of expanding opportunities for and within the Chicago documentary community, and also that there is a high level of unheralded talent already creating films in the city. If you missed the event, want to apply, or just want to find more information, visit the Diverse Voices in Docs page on our site.
