Climate Storytelling Fellowship

Climate Storytelling Fellowship

The Redford Center is partnering with NRDC’s Rewrite the Future program and the Black List to launch the new Climate Storytelling Fellowship, which aims to encourage more varied climate stories that reflect the reality of the climate crisis and solutions. 

The Fellowship will award three screenwriters $10,000 each, connect them with industry professionals, and provide creative support for their original feature screenplay or pilot script that helps change the climate narrative. At the conclusion of the Fellowship, revised scripts will be hosted on the Black List website and may be reviewed for development by prominent studios, agencies and/or production companies including Hyperobject Industries, Madica Productions, Participant, UTA and WME. Writers will retain all rights to their scripts.

“This unique and impactful fellowship is an opportunity to bring climate storytelling into the mainstream conversation, which is paramount." said Jill Tidman, Executive Director of The Redford Center. “We must empower individuals to see themselves as part of the solution. This fellowship program allows us to offer global audiences stories that lead people toward hope and personal resonance, and provide a sense of efficacy."
