Karen Schmeer Fellowship

There are presently no open calls for applications.


Thank you for your interest in the Karen Schmeer Film Editing Fellowship's programs.

For our fellowship we're looking for emerging documentary editors who have cut at least one feature documentary (longer than 60 minutes) but no more than three and are based in the U.S.

For our diversity program based in New York City, we're looking for editors at all levels of experience who have a strong interest in documentary editing and want to deepen their knowledge of the craft and expand their community. Applicants are invited through a nomination process.
