The Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund at Johns Hopkins has recently announced the opening of the latest round of applications to its groundbreaking program to help build a thriving film and media community in Baltimore.
The Fund is open to all Baltimore area residents and applicants are encouraged to apply by September 30 to one of three categories: narrative; documentary; or, VR/AR immersive media.
“We’re looking to help level the playing field for creative innovators of all backgrounds, at all levels and stages of their careers,” says Annette Porter, director of the fund. “As we head into the fourth round, we are excited to open up new avenues for people to share stories that have been unheard or excluded.”
This year’s new Fellows will be announced on October 25. Throughout the Fall and Winter, Fellows will receive support of their projects through a series of workshops and mentorships with industry experts and then be eligible to apply for Production Funding in early 2019. Over the last three years, the Fund has supported 57 Fellows and awarded over $800,000 to 28 projects.
“In a fitting honor to Saul Zaentz – three-time Academy Award-winning producer whose work included One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Amadeusand The English Patient., The Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund prides itself on elevating and empowering voices that have been ignored, voices that aren’t afraid to push the envelope and explore the complexities of what drives us as a society and as individual beings.”
It’s a good time to be a filmmaker and an even better time to be a filmmaker in Baltimore.
