Starting Summer 2022, Bell Fund will be conducting application clinics for the Short-Form Digital Series and Slate Development Programs.

Clinics will be held as virtual meetings for groups of up to 25 participants and will provide a deep dive into application documentation, assessment criteria, and how to prepare a competitive proposal. This format will allow participants to ask questions, and to interact and learn from other producers.

Who Should Attend

  • First-time applicants to the Slate and Short-Form Digital Series programs (Participation is required)
  • Producers/ creators who have determined their readiness to apply and are seeking support and insights to strengthen their submission
