The Sundance Institute and Time Warner, Inc. have announced the creation of the Time Warner Storytelling Advancement Fund. The Fund will provide support over four years to help fund Sundance Institute's development and celebration of independent artists across the Institute's core programs. "We are fortunate to receive this generous commitment from Time Warner which recognizes the importance of this creative and financial support for independent artists at crucial moments in their work," said Ken Brecher, Executive Director of the Sundance Institute. "Time and again, the most provocative and original artists who have found a home at Sundance have shown a dedication to pushing the boundaries of storytelling." The groups also announced the selection of filmmaker Patricia Benoit and her project "Haiti Cherie" and playwright Tracy Scott Wilson and her project "The Good Negro" as the inaugural Time Warner Storytelling Fellows.
