Future Filmmakers of Appalachia: Apply for AMI’s Summer Documentary Institute

Appalshop's Appalachian Media Institute (AMI) is taking applications for its 2012 Summer Documentary Institute, being held June 11 through July 27 in Whitesburg, KY. From the program description: 


Since 1988, the Appalachian Media Institute has provided opportunities for young people from eastern Kentucky to explore their communities and develop their creative skills through the arts and media.
This summer we will hold our 24th annual Summer Documentary Institute (SDI).  Up to 12 applicants will be chosen from the region to work intensively with AMI and Appalshop staff. Over the course of the summer we will explore the basics of video and audio production, view and discuss documentary film, and learn how to produce and distribute meaningful media about community issues and traditions. 

The 12 internship positions are open to Eastern Kentuckians ages 14-27, and include a small stipend and housing if necessary. To learn more, download the application packet here (PDF).
