For its Diverse Voices in Docs project, the documentary producer (best known for the acclaimed films Hoop Dreams and The Interrupters, which document the challenges of black life in inner-city Chicago) is partnering with the Community Film Workshop of Chicago to put on the six-month workshop program. Six workshops of three hours each will be held in Chicago from January to June 2013, with a final public exhibition to follow.
The deadline is Dec. 17, and anyone of color who has played a principal role in a completed production and has a documented track record of working on films that deal with social issues is eligible to apply. See Kartemquin’s website for more details.
