Three Filmmakers Named for Sundance Fellowships

The Sundance Institute has announced three emerging filmmakers will receive its 2007 Feature Film Program fellowships and grants. Producer Chad Burris has been awarded the Mark Silverman Fellowship for new producers for writer/director Blackhorse Lowe‘s “The Left-Handed Path,” a 2006 Sundance Screenwriters Lab project. Burris will receive a $5,000 pre-production grant and a year of mentorship from independent producers Meg LeFauve and Ed Saxon. Writer/director Victoria Mahoney has received the Lynn Auerbach Screenwriting Fellowship for her project “Yelling at the Sky,” the story of a young sister in a tough New York neighborhood facing difficult life choices. Mahoney will receive a $2,500 grant for her 2006 Screenwriters and Directors Labs project and mentorship from screenwriters Walter Bernstein and John Gatins. Mahoney also received this year’s Maryland Film Fellowship along with writer/director Tanya Hamilton, for “Stringbean and Marcus.” Each will get $5,000 from the Producers Club of Maryland for the production of their features.
