Sentient.Art.Film, which describes itself as a “creative distribution initiative,” is in the middle of its second online repertory series, “My Sight is Lined with Visions” (online through January 22 of next year). Now, Sentient.Art.Film has announced the five artists and filmmakers chosen for its inaugural Line of Sight fellowship. From the press release:
Unlike the project-based artist development programs that dominate the indie film landscape, the Line of Sight Fellowship provides intergenerational mentorship and community-building discussion space for participants to develop a collective understanding of historical radical filmmaking (particularly the practices of marginalized communities) and shared future imaginaries outside of market pressures. Each Fellow was paired with a mentor filmmaker through a multi-round matchmaking process. Both Fellows and Mentors will receive a stipend of $3,750.
The five fellows chosen for this year are Emily Chao, Chy Chi, R.J. Lozada, Suneil Sangziri and Tiffany Sia; the mentors are Roddy Bogawa, Marlon Fuentes, Jon Moritsugu, Rea Tajiri and Tran, T. Kim-Trang. The first rounds of reviews were conducted by Line of Sight’s Program Director (and sometime Filmmaker contributor) Abby Sun, Artistic and Managing Director Keisha N. Knight, and Howie Chen. Click here to read the full press release, including the impressive bios of both Fellows and Mentors.
