Sundance Institute has announced the participants for its annual Creative Producing Labs and Creative Producing Summit, both held in the same week at the Sundance Resort in Sundance, Utah.
Eleven projects have been selected to participate in the Labs (July 30 – August 3) and receive ongoing creative and strategic support throughout the year, as well as direct granting for further development and production. The Fellows represent five projects from the Feature Film Program and six from the Documentary Film Program and Fund.
Immediately following the Creative Producing Labs, the Creative Producing Summit (August 3-5) begins. The Summit is an invitation-only gathering that connects 40 producers and directors, including the Producing Fellows, with over 30 top independent film industry leaders for three days of case study sessions, panels, roundtable discussions, one-on-one meetings and pitching sessions.
"Sundance Institute is committed to supporting emerging independent film producers, and our Creative Producing Initiative is a rare opportunity for them to sharpen their creative instincts, evolve their problem-solving skills, and deepen their knowledge of the distribution landscape," Keri Putnam, Executive Director of Sundance Institute, said. "In doing so, they are better equipped to successfully navigate an increasingly complex marketplace."
