IFP Independent Filmmaker Labs Open for Submissions

Deadlines to Apply: March 9 (Documentary) / April 6 (Narrative)
IFP's Independent Filmmaker Labs are a year-long fellowship supporting

independent filmmakers when they need it most: through the completion,
marketing, and distribution of their first features. Lab submission is open
to all first-time documentary and narrative feature directors with films in

post-production. Structured in three week-long components held over the
year, the Labs offer personalized attention on post-production, audience
building, and distribution strategies in the digital age, followed by

continued support from IFP as the project premieres in the marketplace.

Recent Lab Project alumni now in theaters include Dee Rees' Pariah (Focus
Features), Alrick Brown's Kinyarwanda (AFFRM), and Victoria Mahoney's

Yelling to the Sky (MPI), being released this spring. Premieres at 2012
festivals have included An Oversimplification of Her Beauty (Sundance),
Welcome to Pine Hill (Slamdance, Grand Jury Award), Una Noche (Berlin), and

The Light in Her Eyes and Smokin' Fish (IDFA 2011) – with more Lab alumni
set for upcoming festivals and broadcast. To apply or for more information,
