First Look Media’s documentary unit, Field of Vision, has announced a new fellowship. A press release also revealed the year-long, collaborative program’s 2018’s fellows, and three of four of them are women. Designed to support filmmakers in achieving their long-term artistic goals, the fellowship will offer its participants assistance with “creating a framework for idea development, creative support, and a grant,” and Field of Vision will present workshops on topics such as research and legal issues.
The 2018 female fellows are Lyric R. Cabral, Michelle Latimer, and Garret Bradley. They were selected from filmmakers who had collaborated with Field of Vision over the last three years.
Cabral was awarded an Emmy for her directorial debut, “(T)error.” The doc screened at more than 50 festivals.
Latimer’s credits include Viceland docuseries “Rise” and Sundance short “Choke.” She’s currently working on a film adaptation of the best-selling novel “The Inconvenient Indian.
