The Chris Lehmann Memorial Scholarship

Maine Media Workshops + College

In the summer of 2017, the MMW + C community was saddened by the loss of our friend and colleague Christopher Lehmann. A talented, Emmy Award winning filmmaker, inspiring and tireless teacher, Chris was a truly valued member of our community. Over the 7 years that Chris was affiliated with us, he taught nearly 200 students from 15 countries across the globe.

Friends of Chris have established an annual memorial scholarship for budding filmmakers wishing to attend one of our outstanding filmmaking workshops or receive assistance towards the cost of the 4-week film school. This scholarship is intended to enable students who would not otherwise be able to afford the full cost of attending. Applications open each year until the award is made. Application is by submission of a reel of your work, accompanied by evidence of financial need as demonstrated on the application form, resume, your latest tax return and 3 letters of recommendation. Materials must be sent electronically to: [email protected] Portfolios/reels must be placed online for viewing.
