AFF FILM FELLOWS

The AFF Film Fellows Program provides HS and College Students interested in film/tv/digital media production real- world work experience, training, and industry mentors. Our goal is to promote access and develop pathways for emerging talent, diverse voices, and underrepresented youth to explore careers in the film/tv/digital media fields.

Fellows are selected in Jan/Feb and participate in projects for as long as they wish (or for as long as their school allows) during that year.  Some are with us Feb- May.  Others have been with us for 3 years.
