About the MKE Film Fellowship
If you’re looking for an even more hands-on experience than a workshop, this free program is for you.
Please complete this form by September 21 to apply for the 2020 Milwaukee Film Festival Educator Fellowship. (This year, offered virtually!) All applicants will be notified by October 1 if they have been selected for the program.
Structured like a seminar, the fellowship includes a pre-festival session, a handful of required readings, three post-festival discussion sessions, a final presentation/capstone (in February), and a list of required festival films. Fellows will be required to create and share a teaching object (assignment activity, mini curricular module, lesson plan, etc) as their capstone activity of the program.
Educators selected for the free program will receive a festival pass (retail price: $140) and complimentary copies of required readings/books. The fellowship should take approximately 30-40 hours to complete between October and February, with the bulk of that time spent viewing films during the festival (Oct. 15- 29).
