It is with bittersweet emotion that I share the launch of the Andrew Berends Film Fellowship in memory of filmmaker Andrew Berends, who passed away in March of this year.
The mission of this fellowship is to seek out and support emerging filmmakers from all walks of life that embody Andy’s spirit and determination, with a focus on sharing unheard stories. It was born out of the desire of Andy’s family, friends, and colleagues to keep his memory alive and active in the world of documentary where he himself thrived.
