May the Best Filmmaker Win: indieWIRE Project of the Month Winners to Receive Consultations from Sundance Institute

Los Angeles --August 30, 2011-- Film website indieWIRE is proud to announce an exciting new partnership tied to indieWIRE's popular Project of the Day feature. Each week, readers will vote for their favorite in-the-works film project; from those, readers will vote for a monthly winner who will receive an in-depth consultation with a senior member of Sundance Institute’s program staff. Depending on the nature of the winning project and its objectives, indieWIRE will coordinate consultations with the Institute’s Feature Film, Documentary, Film Festival, Native American & Indigenous Program or Artist Services program.

The contest is an extension of indieWIRE's popular Project of the Day column. These projects are selected by indieWIRE editors from filmmaker-submitted applications. Most submissions are looking for crowdfunding through sites like Kickstarter or IndieGoGo, but site affiliation is not required. All formats -- features, shorts, documentaries and online video -- qualify and films may be in any stage of production. Filmmakers may submit their projects here.

"indieWIRE has always reported on independent films in production, but when we launched Project of the Day the response was immediate," said Dana Harris, editor in chief of indieWIRE. "And one of the first fans to reach out was Sundance Institute’s Executive Director Keri Putnam. I'm thrilled that Sundance Institute wants to support this feature and I'm looking forward to bringing exciting new voices to both indieWIRE readers and to the program staff at Sundance Institute.”

“Sundance Institute and indieWIRE are natural partners, as we both share a commitment to serving as a resource for independent filmmakers,” said Putnam. “This partnership holds enormous potential to energize and mobilize emerging filmmakers, while also raising awareness and building support for creative projects in development.”

This is how it works:
- indieWIRE publishes a Project of the Day Monday through Thursday. On Friday, starting at 10am ET, those four projects will be put to a vote using a Facebook-based polling system that ties a vote to the user's Facebook profile. Voting closes Sunday at 6pm ET. The voting will determine a weekly winner, which will be announced on indieWIRE.
- When all weekly winners have been determined for the month, they will be put to another vote the following Monday, starting at 10am ET. Voting will run throughout the week, closing Friday at 6pm ET.
- The Project of the Month will be announced in indieWIRE the following Monday and will receive an in-depth phone consultation with one of Sundance Institute’s senior program staff.
