Film Still from Night Fight by Khary Saeed Jones

The Film Study Center-LEF Foundation Fellowship is open to Boston-area nonfiction filmmakers who are not currently affiliated with Harvard.

One filmmaker per academic year receives a $10,000 grant (jointly funded by FSC and LEF Foundation), access to FSC’s pool of production and post-production equipment, and the opportunity to participate in the Harvard FSC community through work-in-progress screenings, workshops, and other activities.

Applicants to the LEF Moving Image Fund who have been invited to submit a full application for production and post-production grant awards will be considered for the FSC-LEF Fellowship if they meet the following criteria:

  •  They reside within 50 miles of Cambridge
  •  They are not currently affiliated with Harvard
  •  They will benefit from and contribute to the FSC community

Central to the FSC-LEF fellowship is participation in the monthly work-in-progress screenings. At these meetings, fellows have the opportunity to present rushes, rough cuts, or fine cuts and receive feedback from other fellows. Participation by the FSC-LEF fellow is expected.
