Chica Luna is Now Accepting Applications for the 3rd cycle of the F-Word!
Please spread the word!
Up and running and taking applications for our signature program, The F-Word, a multimedia film justice project for women of color 18 and older. Launched in January 2005, The F-Word has been Chica Luna's way to build the next cadre of socially conscious media makers by recruiting women of color of diverse racial, sexual, economic and linguistic identities, throughout the five boroughs to cultivate their perspectives as media activists.
For a year and a half, participants take part in weekly workshops on media literacy, filmmaking, organizing & advocacy skills and self-healing.
Past F-word participants have directed and produced narrative films on topics as diverse and varied as first love, female MCs, depression and police brutality. Once completing our training, these dynamic women continue to do important and innovative work in the worlds of film and video, along with theater, music and education.
Know any women who'd thrive in this program? Send them our way. Help us change the media landscape--for the better. Whether you or they are interested in receiving the basic fundamentals of media literacy and film/video production or have no film or video experience, Chica Luna encourages ALL to apply. But apply soon--the deadline for applications is Thursday, May 15th.
For any questions concerning this application or the F-Word: Media Justice Film/Video Lab, please contact Karly at or 212-410-3544.
