Building on three years of success, Sundance Institute presents ShortsLab 2014, half- and day-long workshops for shorts filmmakers. Recognizing the important role shorts have and will continue to have in cinema, storytelling, and culture and after the success of the first ShortsLab, Sundance Institute’s 2014 ShortsLab will include four cities: London, Los Angeles, Miami, and Philadelphia.

Our goal is to empower the next wave of emerging artists by giving them first-hand insight into the basics of developing their idea, to making their film, to getting it seen by audiences. Focusing on narrative short-form storytelling, each event will be packed with panels, discussions, and screenings with a wide-ranging mix of filmmakers and industry professionals and will conclude with a reception to network with fellow shorts filmmakers.

Filmmakers are invited to participate in this seminar of Sundance-organized panels and discussions to offer firsthand insight and access into the world of story development,  production, working with cast and crew, and how to get the most out of making a short film.
