Brave New Films

Culver City, CA

The Brave New Fellows Program offers social justice advocates from communities of color and/or economically marginalized communities a one year, paid opportunity to work with Brave New Films and learn how to create and distribute media that makes a difference. By working alongside experienced staff, fellows build practical skills in digital storytelling, production, post-production, campaign strategies, outreach, research, and social media. Fellows spend the majority of the year in one of three areas: post-production, outreach and research, or social media. The fellowship equips activists to use film to support activism, and prepares them for jobs in social justice advocacy, media, and filmmaking.

To complement the on-the-job learning, fellows also meet and network with film directors, activists, journalists, politicians and organizers, and they receive training in camera operation, database management, fundraising, and more.

As compensation, each fellow receives $800/week for the duration of the fellowship, medical and dental insurance, and PTO. Fellows work full time (M-F, 9:00-6:00) in our Culver City, CA office.

For fellows coming from outside the United States, we assist with visa/immigration processing and compensate a portion of travel expenses. However, relocation/housing is not provided by Brave New Films.
