The Native American Media Alliance (NAMA) has announced the call for entries for the 2nd Annual Native American Unscripted Workshop.

“The unscripted space is an area that lacks the inclusiveness of Native American content creation and our tribal communities do not yet have access at scale. This initiative addresses another area of ​​the industry that lacks support for our Native storytellers,” said Ian Skorodin, Chief Strategy Officer of the Native American Media Alliance, in a statement.

“NAMA is proven to challenge the industry and deliver authentic results. This effort will provide native content creators with an immersive look at what companies are looking for and further prepare them to present their projects.

Launched to create new opportunities for Native American documentarians, the Native American Unscripted Workshop is a week-long virtual creative lab that provides access to creative executives, experienced producers, and veteran documentarians. In its first year, the Native American Unscripted Workshop will accept 10 Native American filmmakers to participate in the inaugural program which will take place at the end of October 2022. The application deadline is August 19, 2022 (the usual deadline is September 2 and the final The deadline is September 16).

The Native American Unscripted Workshop is designed to encourage Native American filmmakers to develop their current opportunities. The workshop ends with a presentation panel during which each fellow will present their latest project. This initiative is supported by Comcast NBCUniversal, A+E Networks, CNN, YAHOO and the Cherokee Nation Film Office.
