Vimeo Share the Screen Fellowship – Now Accepting Applications

We have partnered up with Vimeo for the second Share the Screen Fellowship! Application deadline April 28th, 2017.

We are proud to announce that we have partnered up with Vimeo for the second Share the Screen Fellowship, a unique opportunity that will award one female-identifying content creator with 6-months of membership and workspace to develop their project. This scholarship is part of Vimeo’s ongoing efforts to help close the gender gap that prevails in the entertainment industry, fostering equality by supporting women-led video and film projects. Projects can include anything from a film to a narrative series, and can still be in its very early stages, or nearing completion. Last year’s incredible applicants that entered are proof that there are many talented women in film creating inspiring work around the world.

  • Dedicated workspace and office amenities including conference rooms, library, kitchen and editing suite
  • Access to exclusive office hours with leading media and industry Experts-in-Residence
  • Invitation to private networking and industry events

  • Priority will be given to projects in development or early pre-production
  • Applicant needs to have a Vimeo account to publish the project

  • Applicant must commit to (3) meetings with the Vimeo team over the six- months fellowship
  • Current Media Center members are ineligible

The fellow will be notified on May 26th, 2017 by the Made in NY Media Center and Vimeo staff and will be awarded based on the overall strength of the applicant’s project and the project’s core principles.
