We are so proud of Director, Nyasha Kadandara’s selection to the ‘Black Director’s Fellowship’ organized by Brown Girls Doc Mafia.
Nyasha is a close friend and Director of two LBx Africa-produced films still in development; Matabeleland and Come Sunrise We Shall Rule.
The fellowship aims to fill the gap in the current documentary ecosystem that doesn’t prioritize the needs of BIPOC women and nonbinary filmmakers and will take a holistic approach that considers the entirety and sustainability of their career and long-term future.
It also includes access to funding, curated advisor meetings, creative and professional development retreats, support for attending a documentary film festival, community building through mentorship and leadership opportunities, and hands-on personal, creative, and career development support from BGDM program staff.
All the very best to Nyasha as she takes on this amazing opportunity!
