  • CoLAB is a 10 month fellowship for multidisciplinary non-fiction focused on artist development and the creation of short projects working in a group.
  • SDI is a 5 week workshop for filmmakers with feature docs in early development that pushes projects towards full production on every axis, practical to creative.
I was in the CoLAB several years ago, and can't recommend it enough. I connected with some amazing people and collaborators as a result. It's the place to be to explore the cutting edge in nonfiction storytelling. They usually select groups of people with very diverse backgrounds in art and different types of media, so it's a unique place to explore intersections of radio, film, visual art, and storytelling forms of all types. 
Check 'em out! 

The Collaborative Studio is a 10-month program for a select group of 12-14 media artists from the US and abroad who come from different backgrounds and different levels of experience (photography, visual arts, radio, human rights, journalism and more traditional forms of documentary). The program offers a platform for exploring contemporary approaches to the documentary and non-fiction arts, and consists of weekly production meetings, seminars, masterclasses and critiques with visiting artists. The main goal is the development of a collection of original short creative documentaries on a shared theme.
