The annual  Storytellers’ Institute  sponsored by the John B. Moore Documentary Studies Collaborative (MDOCS) is a five-week summer residency at Skidmore College. This unique experience combines the freedom to create work with the fulfillment of mentoring the next generation of practitioners. The institute brings together four professional documentarians (Visiting Fellows) and 10 Skidmore College student and faculty members to work on personal projects, receive and give critiques, and engage with a theme. This year's theme, Surveil/Surveilled, invites a timely discussion around rights to privacy and also a meta conversation about documentary techniques and surveillance.  Visiting Fellow applications  are now open and documentary makers working in all mediums are invited  to apply. Priority is given to those working most closely with the  annual theme. 


Fellowship includes: a $2500 honorarium, travel stipend, a public exhibition, room and board, workspace, and access to Skidmore facilities  

Dates: May 31- July 1, 2018  

Applications Deadline: December 15, 2017
