Native Producer Fellowship Now Accepting Applications

Help Spread the Word to Native Producers

Sundance Institute is seeking Native American, Native Hawaiian, and Alaskan Native filmmakers working in the U.S. for the 2013 Sundance Institute – Time Warner Foundation Native Producer Fellowship. The Fellowship provides two emerging producers with mentorship and consultation from leading independent film professionals. The Fellowship includes invitations to participate in the Native Forum of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January and the Institute’s Creative Producing Summit, held in August, 2014.

If you or someone you know is a Native producer seeking support and creative feedback for their independent film projects, submit and/or share the application available here: www.sundance.org/programs/native-producing-fellowship/

Sundance Institute deepened its commitment to Native artists by launching a new Native Producers Fellowship, which identifies emerging Native producers and supports their professional development and the development of their projects. Responding to a crucial need to cultivate more Native American producers who can manage production; oversee packaging, financing, and distribution; and engage with the marketplace; this Initiative aims to support the sustainability and longevity of Native artists throughout their careers.

Native Producing Fellowships will follow the model of Sundance Institute’s Creative Producing Fellowships. The Initiative will identify two Fellows and support their attendance at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where they will participate in the Festival’s Native Forum, and at Sundance Institute’s Creative Producing Summit in the summer. Native Producing Fellows will be considered for ongoing support and opportunities within the Institute’s Creative Producing Initiative and Creative Producers Lab after they participate in the Native Program’s Producers Fellowship.

Applications for Feature Film, Documentary, and Short Film will be accepted.
