Snarky Elephant Productions





Apr 12, 2024

Snarky Elephant’s Incubator is an annual cohort program that supports underrepresented creators by supporting their projects and careers. The Incubator is designed to work individually with creators, accommodating their unique careers, trajectory, interests, and vision, regardless of experience level. The program offers benefits such as networking with established industry professionals (including those with experience at Sundance, Lionsgate, and Pushkin), artistic and career guidance, and promotional support. This opportunity is perfect for creators who are interested in creating works that involve underrepresented perspectives, identities, and communities. Whether you’re a seasoned artist with a new vision, a mid-career creator ready to take your work to the next level, or a budding creative with a story to tell, they provide the resources and guidance to help you thrive!

Annual deadline: Open application, Sept 15. Late deadline open until Oct 1.
Application fee: $25; $35 for late applications.


Snarky Elephant’s Incubator is looking for emerging creatives in the film industry whose work embodies the principles of the Snarky Elephant mission. They accept a wide variety of submissions for content including: scripted or unscripted; narrative; documentary; short form; long form, etc.

They are especially interested in:
• BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ creatives
• Narratives that capture underrepresented experiences, communities, and outlooks
• Narratives that feature bold and unusual shifts in perspectives that are rarely seen in Hollywood
• Narratives that challenge the status quo and seek to dismantle stigma, alienation, racism, homophobia, and other global sensitivities.
