The Better Angels Lavine Fellowship Program is a new component of the Library of Congress Lavine/Ken Burns Prize for Film program. The fellowship is for promising filmmakers whose films are not selected as finalists for the Lavine Prize, but demonstrate the potential for excellence. With a special emphasis on film projects telling the stories of America’s diversity, the filmmakers will receive mentorship, guidance, and advice from a panel of expert filmmakers on the film projects they submit to the Library of Congress Lavine/Ken Burns Prize for Film.
The Better Angels Lavine Fellowship will provide mentorship for 5 filmmakers per year. All applicants to the Library of Congress Lavine/Ken Burns Prize for Film will be considered automatically for the fellowship. No additional application materials necessary.
