Indiewire Announces Finalists For 2014 Indiewire | Sundance Institute Fellowship For Film Criticism

Indiewire Announces Finalists For 2014 Indiewire | Sundance Institute Fellowship For Film Criticism

For the first time, Indiewire is launching a new partnership with the Sundance Institute in memory of the late film critic Roger Ebert: The Indiewire | Sundance Institute Fellowship For Film Criticism will help send six aspiring film critics to the Sundance Film Festival for the duration of the Park City gathering. This initiative, generously supported by the Roger Ebert Scholarship for Film Criticism, follows successful workshops along similar lines that Indiewire helped organize in Locarno and New York. For the Sundance Fellowship, we received more than 450 applications around North America, a startling number filled with countless strong, passionate writers with a broad range of sensibilities.

It was a painfully tough decision to whittle our list down to six finalists, but we couldn’t be happier with caliber of the accepted critics, whose names we’re excited to unveil today.

During Sundance, these critics will review numerous world premieres at the festival in addition to tracking buzz, contributing to and our own Criticwire blog. They will also have the chance to analyze the state of their craft by working alongside several critic “mentors” and experience innumerable networking opportunities at the most prominent festival in America.

You’ll be hearing a lot from them in these parts even before the festival kicks off on January 16, so get used to these names, and stay tuned for more details about each of them:
