MIT Open Documentary Lab, MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology, and Black Public Media have joined forces to launch a remote, 4-month fellowship for Black filmmakers, journalists, creative technologists, and artists. Eligible applicants must be developing a documentary or nonfiction project using emerging technologies (such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, or robotics) or using "old tech" (projections, multichannel video, console video games, VFX, 3D, etc.) in new and inventive ways. The virtual fellowship runs Sept. 8, 2020, to Jan. 29, 2021.
An announcement about the selected fellowship recipient will be made in early September. Thanks to all who applied.
