Emerging Artist Mentorship Program

OUTeast Film Festival Association is pleased to announce the first participant in their Emerging Artist Mentorship Program.

OUTeast will offer ongoing, hands-on mentorship to 21-year old emerging film and video artist Morgan Strug through the process of creating, producing, and presenting an original queer video project. The mentorship will culminate in a presentation of Morgan’s work at the OUTeast Film Festival in June, 2012, headlining an Emerging Artists Showcase Event.

The mentorship will provide Morgan individualized hands-on training with the staff of the OUTeast Film Festival, offering support in technical production, editing, and pitch development, as well as promotion and coordination of the Emerging Artists Showcase Event.

The Emerging Artists Showcase will feature Morgan’s film, and the work of other young queer filmmakers. This fall, OUTeast will encourage submissions from young queer filmmakers throughout our region. Please stay tuned for updates.
