IFP Independent Filmmaker Labs Call-For-Entries

[Another opportunity that has crossed my desk... Note that the deadline for documentary submissions has passed. The narrative deadline closes in April.]

IFP Independent Filmmaker Labs – Call for Documentary & Narrative Features A National Program Connecting Mentors and Projects Before They Are Submitted to Festivals

Documentary Lab Submission Deadline: February 13. Narrative Lab Submission Deadline: April 17.

Led by experienced producers, the Labs assist filmmakers in tackling the creative challenges of completing their modestly-budgeted, independently produced films - getting a leg-up before industry exposure. The five-day mentorship program in NYC challenges filmmakers to realize the full potential of their footage and stories with ongoing dynamic feedback and advice on technical & creative issues and distribution methods. The Labs are for first-time, narrative & documentary feature directors in the late stages of post-production. For more info & application:
