Filmmakers in the early stages of their careers are encouraged to apply for a Morrison film fellowship through the Maine Community Foundation.
Through the Jane Morrison Memorial Film Fund, one to two grants between $1,000 and $2,000 will be awarded to filmmakers seeking to obtain instruction in filmmaking by attending a workshop, conference, or film festival.
The Maine Arts Commission manages the review process for the Morrison Fund. Applications for the fellowship must be postmarked by January 14, 2011. Go to mainearts.maine.gov for guidelines. Each applicant must speak with Kerstin Gilg, media arts and performing arts associate at the Maine Arts Commission, at 207-287-2726, before applying. Preference is given, but not restricted, to Maine residents.
