Sundance Native American and Indigenous Fellowship Program

Monday, November 25th, 2013

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 program
is designed to support filmmakers working to strengthen their craft,
develop their voice, and advance current projects toward production.

The
Native Lab Fellowship is a two-stage development opportunity for
filmmakers with short film scripts. The first stage of development is an
intensive five-day workshop in May 2014). During the workshop, fellows
will receive comprehensive feedback on their projects from established
screenwriters and directors. Held during the Sundance Film Festival, the
second stage of the fellowship is intended to help advance fellows’
careers by providing networking opportunities with film professionals
who advise them about the business of cinema.

Submissions will be
judged on their originality, artistic voice, and potential to advance
toward production. Submitted scripts/stories need not be about a
specific culture or theme. All stories are welcome and contemporary
stories are encouraged.
