PRESS RELEASE: CAmm Fellowship at Creative Alliance

CAmm Fellowship
Jan ‘10-Dec ‘10

The purpose of the CAmm Fellowship is to promote growth and expertise in filmmaking and time based media arts of all genres and to support the development of finished, professional film, video and media arts projects. Each year CAmm awards one Fellowship to a filmmaker or artist working in time-based media living and working in Maryland, for a specific film/video project planned for completion in that year. Fellows receive extended free use of CAmm Cage gear and the CAmm Media Lab and editing suite, for a specified time period. The Fellowship also includes a work-in-progress critique with established members of the film community (determined by the subject and format of the project) and concludes with a screening opportunity at The Patterson. Applications are evaluated on the strength of the proposed project and quality of past work. Works in progress are encouraged.
