In addition to a small amount of funds, filmmakers will receive on-going educational resources, and participate in a two-day puppet filmmaking workshop intensive.
"The 2020 cohort came together as this great little community when we all needed that kind of connection. Their diverse artistic backgrounds created a rich creative environment from which a remarkable collection of films grew. " said Executive Producer Heather Henson. "With this year's program we want to further nurture the creativity of our new cohort of puppeteers and filmmakers as they create quarantine-friendly, short, original, puppet films at home. We can't wait to see what comes from our 2021 artists."
