Become a Full-Time Badass Investigative Journalist with this New Residency

The Center For Investigative Reporting is looking to hire three women for full-time Filmmaker in Residence positions.

In an effort to bring some balance to a male-dominated film industry, The Center for Investigative Reporting has announced a new residency program designed specifically to support recent graduates and women in the first five years of their careers. The nonprofit multi-platform news organization is known for creating content dedicated to engaging and empowering the public through investigative journalism and groundbreaking storytelling. Their work includes video, text reporting, interactive apps, live events, and the nationally distributed public radio show and podcast “Reveal,” co-produced with PRX.

The residency, taking place at the new headquarters in Emeryville, California, will begin in mid-October 2016 and continue until mid-August 2017. This opportunity is especially great for California filmmakers because winners must be willing to live in the San Francisco Bay Area for the duration of the residency.

The three women who are chosen as winners will become the beneficiaries of a full-time position which pays $50,000 (plus benefits) as compensation for a 10-month residency. In addition, filmmakers will receive resources and funding to help them produce and complete their final project, which must be in the form of a short documentary or multimedia project on the subject of your choice.

The residency's focus is largely based on working with award-winning reporters and producers inside a fast-paced and dynamic newsroom. Duties will include producing short investigative pieces while conducting individual reporting that could​ ultimately prove invaluable to later work an investigative documentarian. To apply, all you need to do is fill out this form by September 23. No fees attached.

I don't remember Erin Brockavich ever being an investigative journalist. But you knew that didn't you. That pic is really about the plunging neckline isn't it?

Hah! I was just about to post the same thing. Erin Brockovich was a LAWYER, not an investigative journalist. Why isn't this a picture of Rachel McAdams in Spotlight?!?

Erin Brockovich is and never was a lawyer. She does research and once worked as a law clerk.

Ahh, you're right. I watched the movie probably a decade ago. At any rate, Rachel McAdams in Spotlight would still be a much more logical and fitting photo here.
