Rethinking talent discovery and artist support for independent filmmakers.


Rethinking talent discovery and artist support for independent filmmakers.​


We are currently exploring access, equity and the future of talent discovery in the independent film industry through academic research. The research hopes to address systemic practices that could reduce risk and increase profitability for investors, inviting and encouraging them to expand support opportunities for emerging creatives.


Since 2004 we have been growing Angaelica through creative collaborations, independent productions, education programs and our own mentorship film festival (founded in 2008). We are always working to be encouraging and empowering to artists, creators and independent filmmakers via:

across the nation from our initial venues in Washougal, WA where we started to OR, CA, MN and FL.

We are continuing to reimagine our mandate to include the virtual world and utilizing adaptive technologies for creatives. We are evolving ways to support the same mission, same passion, simply in different platforms that include; insights from industry mentors, filmmaker conversations, pitch projects, alumni updates, learning from our audiences how to better grow and support our local and international communities more meaningfully. It is an honor to; enjoy, engage and elevate our programs. We continue working towards what’s best for our creatives and challenging the most effective ways to celebrate, cultivate and connect our ever growing community.


We are exploring and testing ways to provide additional support for artists, writers, independent filmmakers and content creators based on the research. Be encouraged to connect and we are excited to collaborate with you on what is possible together.
