Kartemquin Films is seeking documentary filmmakers of color for a mentorship program.

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.
