In the fall of 2015, Impact Partners launched the Documentary Producers Fellowship with the goal of celebrating the documentary producer, and fostering emerging producing talent in the field. 

Guest luminaries who participated in the 2016 fellowship workshops included: Jeremy Chilnick, Victoria Cook, Howard Gertler, Julie Goldman, Andrew Herwitz, Amy Hobby, Tabitha Jackson, Marilyn Ness, Thom Powers, Morgan Spurlock, & Eden Wurmfeld. Each workshop explores a different aspect of film production facing producers today. The workshops cover film finance, festival and sales strategy, the distribution landscape, legal workshops and other critical topics. During each session, luminaries work closely with each fellow to choose topics and issues with immediate relevancy to their current work, offering hands-on advice, strategies and best practices. The workshops are moderated by Impact Partners’ Executive Director Dan Cogan.

Lance is the recipient of the 2014 DC Mayor's Arts Award, the highest award given to working artists in Washington, DC. In addition to CITY OF TREES, Lance served as a field producer on HARD EARNED (Kartemquin series produced for Al Jazeera America), co-producer of VOICES FROM WITHIN and associate producer of FLY BY NIGHT. He produced the award-winning youth documentaries LIFE AS A COLLAGE, DOING IT FOR ME, and IN THE PATH OF MY FATHER. Lance served two terms as Board Member of Docs In Progress and was a DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities Individual Arts Fellow in 2015.

Way to go LANCE!

The Particular Perspective of James Baldwin: "I Am Not Your Negro" MHP Team Screening

It always fascinates me how many interesting and prominent American figures, particularly people of color, are regularly excluded from the narratives found in textbooks and school history lessons. I am astounded when I learn of someone whom I feel should have been an integral part of my early education and whose contributions and works I should be fully aware of by now. Most recently, I experienced this when the whole MHP team went together to see the new Oscar-nominated documentary film, I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO.
