2021 Film Festival Leadership Lab Now Accepting Applications!

The Film Festival Leadership Lab (FFLL), a partnership between the Film Festival Alliance and Full Spectrum Features, was created to cultivate a more diverse, informed group of film industry decision-makers, connecting a network of emerging leaders in a field that is often siloed.

Between the systemic inequities of the film industry and the fraught mechanics of nonprofit operations, there are many obstacles for folks who are committed to a career in independent film exhibition. The Lab seeks to offer emerging industry professionals opportunity, education, and connection.

With support from Stephen Sloan, founder of the Humane Leadership Institute (HLI) and board member of the Ashland Independent Film Festival, the FFLL curriculum was designed to equip participants with the techniques and core values of the HLI: fair strength, generative care, and wise balance.
