newportFILM lab

newportFILM lab brings together seven emerging filmmakers in a farmhouse just outside of Newport, RI for a weekend-long master class on documentary film cinematography.  In this intimate, focused environment, cinematographers will have time to reflect on their process, share their work with peers and receive mentorship and critiques from master class filmmakers and leaders in the industry.

newportFILM lab is hosted at the Norman Bird Sanctuary, a wildlife sanctuary and education center with more than 325 acres of diverse habitats and seven miles of hiking trails. Participants will spend the weekend at the Sanctuary, reflecting critically on their creative visions and practices while meaningfully advancing their projects and careers.
