No Comment Film Fellowship

No Comment Film Fellowship

RE:IMAGINE Your Future

The No Comment Film Fellowship (NoCo), founded in 2016, is an intensive summer program in documentary and narrative filmmaking. It emerged in response to the frustrations of students seeking authentic, high-quality media content tailored to their demographic. In collaboration, our team developed a program aimed at equipping young creatives (ages 16-19) with the skills to craft and convey the stories that matter most to them.

NoCo empowers students to learn the art of writing, producing, and pitching their films, instilling confidence in their craft, and providing valuable film samples for college applications or career pursuits. Since its inception, over 90 students have successfully completed the fellowship, many of whom have gone on to attend prestigious film schools and embark on careers within the creative media industry.

Applications are open for our Summer 2024 Cohort.
