Creating community through documentary

Docs In Progress has opened up applications for our 2018 Documentary Filmmaker-in-Residence. Established filmmakers who are looking for space, community, and access to resources available in Washington DC and Maryland to develop a new project are encouraged to apply.

Depending on the needs, interests, and schedule of the selected filmmaker, the residency may last from 2-6 weeks between May 29-July 27, 2018. Applicants may originate from anywhere in the United States. The selected Resident will receive a $1,000 honoraria and up to $1,000 as a stipend to cover travel and living expenses.

In exchange, the Filmmaker-in-Residence will give back to our vibrant documentary film community by teaching a workshop and screening work, and may be asked to mentor our Fellows while in residence.

The deadline to apply is April 20, 2018. Visit  for more information.

This program is made possible through the support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
