Sundance Institute’s Native American and Indigenous Program announced an open call for applications for its 2014 Native Lab Fellowship, a two-stage artist development program that begins with a filmmakers lab in May. Four projects are selected each year for the Fellowship program, which is open to Native American, Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native film artists.
Applicants are asked to submit a proposal for an original narrative, documentary short or feature length film. Applications are selected based on their originality, artistic voice and potential to advance toward production. Storylines do not require a Native American theme.
The Sundance Institute Native Lab Fellowship is a vital part of the organization’s full circle of support for Native filmmakers to help them get their films made and seen. Applications must be completed by Feb. 3. The application is now online: https://my.sundance.org/forms/native
