Sundance Institute Native American and Indigenous Program Invites Submissions for Native Lab Fellowship
The Sundance Institute’s Native American and Indigenous Program has created a fellowship to provide direct support to emerging Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaskan Native film artists working in the United States.
The Native Film Lab is designed to support filmmakers in strengthening their craft, developing their voice as writers, and advancing their current projects closer to production. All stories are welcome and contemporary stories are encouraged. Stories do not need to be about a specific culture or theme.
The fellowship is a two-stage development opportunity for filmmakers with feature film scripts, documentary projects, and short film scripts. The first stage of development is an intensive five-day workshop to be held May 23-27, 2011. During the workshop, fellows will receive intensive feedback on their projects from established screenwriters and directors. Held at the Sundance Film Festival, the second stage of the fellowship is designed to advance the careers of fellows by providing networking opportunities with film professionals who advise them on the business of cinema.
Applications are judged on their originality, artistic voice, and their potential to advance toward production.
