A new initiative co-presented by FFA and Full Spectrum Features, the Film Festival Leadership Lab will create an intimate professional development opportunity for future film festival industry leaders.
The program is open to mid-level professionals across all departments, and those identified as future leaders within their organizations. Six fellows will be selected to participate with an emphasis placed on bringing together a diverse (gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, geography) cohort of thought leaders.
During the lab, fellows will participate in networking and capacity building sessions and have the opportunity to learn from 3 seasoned industry mentors, and other industry guests. The mentor/fellow relationship will extend throughout the year, as the mentees complete leadership-based projects that will be presented at the 2021 Art House Convergence with a formal session that also evaluates the outcomes of and future opportunities for the program.
