The Better Angels Lavine Fellowship Program is a new component of the Library of Congress Lavine/Ken Burns Prize for Film program. The Lavine Fellowship is made possible by The Better Angels Society and Jeannie and Jonathan Lavine through the Crimson Lion Lavine Family Foundation. 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.
