American Film Institute

The American Film Institute Conservatory (AFI) is a one-of-a-kind graduate program in film studies that trains 140 filmmakers in practical filmmaking experiences over two years.  AFI’s mission is to serve the entertainment industry by developing a pipeline of the next generation of great filmmakers.  In order to support the introduction of creators from richly diverse backgrounds into the program, the Time Warner Fellowship was established to provide aspiring filmmakers, from communities traditionally underrepresented in film and television, access to AFI Conservatory.

Time Warner Foundation’s mission of cultivating a dynamic artistic community is captured in its grant to AFI.  The next generation of storytellers has access to a first-in-class education in film.  Empowering talented filmmakers to step into the industry by crafting meaningful films and careers, AFI’s Time Warner Fellowship does critical work. Through this partnership, AFI is preparing a talented class of future storytellers with unique voices.
