Cinereach has announced the names of the 2010 Reach Film Fellows and their mentors, launching the third year of the programme designed to nurture socially conscious film-makers.

The Reach Film Fellowship (RFF) is an intensive six-month programme in which four film-makers work with individual mentors, a team of advisors, and Cinereach staff to take their short fiction and non-fiction films from concept to completion.

RFF fellows each receive a $5,000 grant and production resources. At the conclusion of the fellowship cycle, an additional $5,000 award will be presented to one of the four Fellows for the completion and distribution of his or her RFF film.

The 2010 Reach Film Fellows, mentors and films are: Nadia Hallgren (mentored by Annie Sundberg) for Love Lockdown; Courtney Hope (mentored by Jeremy Kipp Walker) for Wild Birds; Gabriel Long (mentored by Laurie Collyer) for Brothers; and Anthony Morrison (mentored by Marilyn Agrelo) for Our Principal Intent.
