Age-Friendly Emerging Filmmaker Fellowship

This six-month fellowship provides participants with close mentorship to produce their own short films highlighting local efforts to build age-friendly communities in which people of all ages can be healthy and thrive.

The Age-Friendly Emerging Filmmaker Fellowship is a partnership between the Media Arts Center San Diego, Live Well San Diego, AARP, and the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, Aging & Independence Services. What is “Age-friendly?” Age-friendly communities provide safe, walkable streets; affordable and accessible housing and transportation options; access to needed services; and opportunities for people of all ages to participate in community life. Over the course of six months, fellows develop, shoot and edit films that define what it means for a community to be “age-friendly,” provide examples of local efforts, and offer a vision for a future age-friendly San Diego region.
