CreaTV San Jose is pleased to announce the launch of our new program, DocuMentorMe!

This 12 week free program is meant to engage LGBTQ+ members of our community with an opportunity to explore the creative art of storytelling through documentary media production. We hope to empower the stories and experiences of individuals who identify as queer, transgender, nonbinary, and/or intersex in communities of color and low income or working class residents of San Jose and Santa Clara County.

Participants will be encouraged to research an issue of personal and community relevance, receive mentoring through the process of documentary filmmaking, and will leave the program will a fully produced short documentary about their chosen topic.

Each participant will have access to our professional community media team and resources. This will include the production facilities, equipment, technical training, and mentoring needed to develop artistic and media making skills so they might bring the spirit of innovation and empowerment home to their communities. Additionally, all participants will receive a small monetary stipend for their time, a VTA pass for the duration of the program, and a free one year membership to CreaTV San Jose.

The deadline to apply is September 6, 2019!

    Do I have to be a part of the LGBTQ community to take part in this?

      Hi Robert,

      Great question! Everyone is welcome to apply, but priority will be given to members of the LGBTQ+ community and residents of San Jose who belong to groups traditionally not represented in media.
