It’s that time again! The David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists has been awarding grants to filmmakers working on short films since its Davey Foundation was founded back in 2013 to honor David Ross Fetzer, the Salt Lake City-based actor known for his work in indie projects such as “Must Come Down” and “Point B,” and is now accepting 2016 applications.
Amy Seimetz and Sean Baker will be this year’s guest hosts. Seimetz’s film “Sun Don’t Shine” found great success in the film festival circuit and she is currently writing and directing the FX series “The Girlfriend Experience” and starring in the new “Alien” film. Baker’s “Tangerine” was one of the breakout indie hits of 2015, culminating in a boundary-busting Indie Sprits win for star Mya Taylor just last week.
