EXCLUSIVE: The three recipients of the 2023 NRDC Climate Storytelling Fellowship have been chosen and they have some heavy hitters in their corners as mentors.

With their projects on the climate crisis, Marlee Fox, Quinn Garrett Martin and Joshua Ravenwood were the successful applicants out the 348 submissions last year for the CAA, Natural Resources Defense Council, The Black List and Redford Center backed program.

You can learn more about the recipients and their respective And Away, This Light of Mine and S.O.S. Scoundrels of State features below.

Designated to focus on the consequences and looming and currently catastrophes of our injured natural environment, the projects from Fox, Martin and Ravenwood were judged in no small part on how “compelling, constructive and inclusive” they could be in spotlighting the climate crisis. “Investing in stories that show the diverse faces and impacts of a climate-altered world is crucial for us to process the crisis and move toward action,” said Katy Jacobs, NRDC Climate Storytelling Fellowship founder to Deadline today. “We are thrilled to support these scripts which creatively engage with the climate crisis on a human and emotional level and explore characters grappling with their climate realities.” In that mode, each of the trio will be partnered with an “entertainment industry professional,” as the NRDC puts it, to provide guidance and real-world experience.
