The Docs Insider Program is a program of Docs In Progress which has been designed to strengthen Docs In Progress as a documentary community and provide valued benefits to those who join. While all Docs In Progress screenings, classes, and workshops will continue to remain open to all, Docs Insiders enjoy some special benefits which include:
- Preferred Rates on Docs In Progress classes, workshops, and talks. Particularly for those who plan to participate in two or more Docs In Progress educational programs in a year, being a Docs Insider can represent a significant value.
- Free admission to Docs In Progress Holiday Party
- Access to 501(c)(3) nonprofit status through Docs In Progress Fiscal Sponsorship Program.
Note: There is an additional application process and one time $50 Application fee for the Fiscal Sponsorship Program. You must be a Docs Insiders member to apply for Fiscal Sponsorship, but Docs Insiders membership does not guarantee acceptance into the Fiscal Sponsorship Program.
- Access to the Docs In Progress Fellowship Program. Note: There is an additional application process (and fee if accepted) for the Fellowship Program. You must be a Docs Insiders member to apply for the Fellowship, but Docs Insiders membership does not guarantee acceptance into the Fellowship Program.
- Discounted rates to partner events. In the past, this has included passes to the Silverdocs Documentary Film Festival and Conference, the Documentary Summit, and International Documentary Association Doc-U events in Washington DC.
