iW NEWS | 13 Selected for Sundance Screenwriters Lab

Thirteen projects have been selected by the Sundance Institute for its annual January Screenwriters Lab, taking place January 11 – 16 at the Sundance Resort in Utah. The Lab is a five-day writer’s workshop that gives independent screenwriters the opportunity to work intensively on their feature film scripts with the support of established writers in an environment that encourages innovation and creative risk-taking. This year’s Fellows include a Native American playwright, two novelists, a multimedia/Fine artist and filmmakers from China, Morocco, Brazil and Israel. This year’s projects include: “Addicted to Love” by Liu Hao (China); “Blood Abundance, or the Half-Life of Antoinette” by John Magary (U.S.); “Cockeyed” by Ryan Knighton (Canada); “Hammer and Anvil” by Alicia Erian (U.S.); “Hannah M.” by Hadar Friedlich (Israel); “The Henchman” by Patrick Vala-Haynes (U.S.); “Meadowlandz” by Moon Molson (U.S.); “Poletown” by Daniel Casey (U.S.); “Quotas” by Felipe Gamarano Barbosa and Karen Sztajnberg (U.S./Brazil); “Return” by Liza Johnson (U.S.); “Samba Do Maazooz” by Hicham Ayouch (Morocco); “Shockheaded Peter” by Frank Budgen (U.K.); “Tales of an Urban Indian” by Darrell Dennis (Canada).
