Netflix and The Blackhouse Foundation Partner on the Netflix Nonfiction Producing Fellowship 

This week, Netflix and The Blackhouse Foundation announced their partnership on the Netflix Nonfiction Producing Fellowship.  The year-long program will give rising producers passionate about telling stories from underrepresented perspectives the hands-on training, mentorship and experience to help advance their careers in film and TV production. 

Under the Netflix Nonfiction Film and Series teams, five participants will be selected to each work directly on a production, which includes unscripted, documentary and sports. Additionally, fellows will participate in masterclasses, attend meet and greets with industry executives and gain individual coaching from award-winning creative executives.

The Netflix Nonfiction teams are behind popular films and series including Our Living World, American Symphony, Stamped from the Beginning, Rhythm & Flow, Is it Cake?, Quarterback and more.

The Netflix Nonfiction Producing Fellowship is supported by the Netflix Fund for Creative Equity, the company’s $100 million commitment to help build new opportunities for underrepresented communities within entertainment. 


Founded at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007, our vision is to elevate and protect Black narratives in all spaces, in all ways, and across all platforms so that Black culture can thrive, and Black voices can flourish. Our mission is to build connection, capacity, and coalition for the Black media ecosystem and to constantly reimagine and innovate in a way that perpetually pushes the apex of Black culture.
