Time Warner Native Producing Fellowship

Sundance Institute deepened its commitment to Native artists by launching a new Native Producers Fellowship, which identifies emerging Native producers and supports their professional development and the development of their projects. Responding to a crucial need to cultivate more Native American producers who can manage production; oversee packaging, financing, and distribution; and engage with the marketplace; this Initiative aims to support the sustainability and longevity of Native artists throughout their careers.

Native Producing Fellowships will follow the model of Sundance Institute’s Creative Producing Fellowships. The Initiative will identify two Fellows and support their attendance at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where they will participate in the Festival’s Native Forum, and at Sundance Institute’s Creative Producing Summit in the summer. Native Producing Fellows will be considered for ongoing support and opportunities within the Institute’s Creative Producing Initiative and Creative Producers Lab after they participate in the Native Program’s Producers Fellowship.

Applications for Feature Film, Documentary, and Short Film will be accepted.
