Announcing the creation of the Andrew Berends Film Fellowship.

The mission of this fellowship is to seek out and support emerging filmmakers from all walks of life that embody Andy’s spirit and determination, with a focus on sharing unheard stories. It was born out of the desire of Andy’s family, friends, and colleagues to keep his memory alive and active in the world of documentary where he himself thrived. We hope you will consider helping keep Andy’s memory and spirit alive by supporting the fellowship. More details including when and how to apply for the fellowship will be available on in the coming months.

We will be partnering with the IFP as our fiscal sponsor for donations, and the team from DOC/NYC and Pure Non-Fiction on an Andrew Berends Tribute evening. Click this link for more information and to purchase tickets to the event.
