Black Public Media

INFO: 360 Incubator + is back with a call for submissions open now. In its third year, 360Incubator + is one of Black Public Media’s innovative programs designed to bring filmmakers representing an array of styles, interests and creative approaches into the public media community.  Ten projects (nonfiction feature length or limited series films) that are currently in the pre-production phase will be selected to participate in the program that kicks off this fall and concludes with an opportunity to pitch funders at BPM’s Pitch Black in June 2019.  T

he 360 Incubator, an intensive hands-on training residency, provides media-makers with tailored instruction to address needs specific to each project.  With the guidance of a media professional mentor and group workshops, training is provided in targeted areas such as proposal development, script writing, fundraising, understanding the business, distribution options, outreach, and more.  Every participant completes the Incubator with a pilot or funding reel, a full project proposal, and a robust fundraising strategy. Past 360 projects have secured distribution deals with PBS Digital and World.

DEADLINE: August 31, 2018
