Undergraduate college seniors, graduate students in their final year and recent graduates in their first post-graduate year will be chosen in a rigorous application process starting Spring 2019.
Starting in September, the four fellows will meet with Marcie once a month at Marcie's Upper West Side apartment where she has entertained her friends and colleagues these past years. The monthly guests range from leading independent directors, producers, actors, film critics, sales agents and distributors. Interested in discussing the industry and it's emerging trends from every angle, we choose guests that have unique and active perspectives on independent filmmaking. In addition, the fellows will gain insight on entering the film world and launching their own creative projects, be it as writers, directors or producers.
Fellows will be guided towards independent film projects and tracked into jobs and opportunities in line with the fellows' individual interests.
This fellowship is the first of its kind.

Who Should Apply

Fellows should be interested in a career in film, whether writing, producing, directing, distributing, marketing or sales. Beyond that, and most importantly, they must have a natural curiosity about the film world in its entirety, regardless of their individual interests. With that said, the fellowship will serve their specific interests directly, and so they must be dedicated and committed to the monthly meetings, as well as the support Marcie can provide. Commitment to monthly meetings, and attention to the work Marcie will delineate, is of the utmost importance. Applicants should have a strong academic record, a notable passion for film, and good recommendations from their respective departments.
