Center for Jewish History Announces New Documentary Fellowship
The Center for Jewish History has announced the establishment of the Joseph S. Steinberg Fund for Emerging Jewish Documentary Filmmakers. The fund will support research in the archives housed at the Center for Jewish History, with the goal of ultimately presenting finished documentary works, or works in progress, to a public audience at the center.
Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply for funding to further existing projects, or to start new projects, whose subject matter is in line with the collections housed at the Center for Jewish History. All applicants should be prepared to indicate which specific materials and collections they intend to include in their project. The goal of this fellowship is to provide small stipends to emerging documentary filmmakers working on topics related to modern Jewish history, and is not limited to film students.
The fund will work to support projects that address significant subjects; offer fresh, challenging perspectives; engage audiences across cultural lines; and expand the understanding of Jewish experiences based on the collections of the center's five partners.
Fund recipient(s) will be eligible for awards of up to $3,000 and will be provided with complete access to resources at the Center for Jewish History.
