Firelight Documentary Lab

This grant renewed CPB support for the Firelight Documentary Lab and its work to increase the diversity of content on the national public broadcasting schedule and to connect diverse media makers with public media partners, including local stations, PBS, WORLD channel and others. Over the next three years, Firelight will serve up to 100 filmmakers through its Fellowship program and regional activities, with an emphasis on nurturing underserved populations such as Native Americans and Pacific Islanders and underserved regions including the South and Midwest. Partnerships with major series to create digital content and partnerships with stations for regional day labs provide professional development opportunities.
