|Application||The application for the Creative Producing Lab & Fellowship is open from November 5, 2019, to February 11, 2020, at apply.sundance.org.|
Lab: July 26–30, 2020
|Size of Fellowship||Five projects|
|Location||Sundance Mountain Resort and Park City, Utah|
|Description||The year-long program is designed to nurture emerging producers with project-specific support through the Creative Producing Lab, Sundance Film Festival attendance, a $10,000 grant, year-round mentorship from a dedicated industry mentor, and ongoing support from Sundance Institute staff. The program is designed to hone emerging producers’ creative instincts and evolve their communicating and problem-solving skills at all stages of their next feature film project.
|Giving Back||Should you be selected to participate in the Creative Producing Fellowship, you will be asked to continue the spirit of giving back. Since securing funding for the Institute's programs is a consistent challenge, we request that lab alumni whose projects are produced contribute to the Institute's work to support new generations of emerging filmmakers. Projects supported by the Creative Producing Fellowship are asked to contribute 0.25% of their production budget calculated after the first $1 million (e.g., if your film is produced for $1.2 million, the fee due to the Institute would be $500). Additionally, lab alumni are asked to recognize the fellowship with the credit “Developed with the assistance of the Sundance Institute Feature Film Creative Producing Fellowship.” Any revenue that is designated to Sundance Institute is allocated to the Feature Film Program and is used on an annual basis to provide critical support for the labs. Your ability to give back really makes a difference.
