Are you interested in becoming a filmmaker?

The Bridges Fellowship is designed to help a diverse cohort of transitional-age youth (18-24 years old) learn strategies to successfully prepare for, challenge, and ultimately surmount the barriers to entering and staying in the media industry.

Bridges Fellows will receive an immersive 8-month training in video pre-production, production, and post-production and will be exposed to a range of guest artists, community/industry partners, and career readiness training all while working towards a culminating final film that will be screened at a final showcase.

Fellows who complete all requirements of the program will receive a $500 incentive following each semester (Part I + Part II).


  • Tuesdays, Wednesdays + Thursdays, 4-7 pm
    • Part I – Personal Storytelling : October 10 – December 15
    • Part II: Team Capstones: January 30 – May 9
  • 9th St Independent Film Center, 145 9th St., San Francisco
