The Video Consortium is thrilled to present a second year of the Solutions Storytelling Project, a collaborative storytelling fellowship that connects regional filmmakers and social innovators in the Global South to produce solutions-focused short documentaries that catalyze positive change.

In 2022-2023, SSP brought 20 documentary filmmakers and 19 nonprofit organizations across Africa together to successfully create 19 short films, which are debuting this October – January, on various media platforms and Youtube channels. Now, the program is moving to Latin America!

The PM will also lead a wide array of master classes and mentorship opportunities for the program’s filmmakers.

This is an intense and highly rewarding program with a big mission to make a big impact; we’re looking for someone who’s extremely passionate about using storytelling for social good and has the storytelling/content and management skill set to lead this program with tremendous care, sensitivity, and excitement.
