Sundance Institute

Sundance Institute has long recognized the crucial role independent producers play in finding, championing, and shaping original voices in filmmaking. Their tenacity and longevity are crucial to the quality and abundance of independent cinema, and we are committed to deepening our support.

The Creative Producing Initiative encompasses a year-round series of Labs, Fellowships, granting and events focusing not only on nurturing the next generation of independent producers, but renewing the community of veteran producers dedicated to sustaining the vibrancy and vitality of independent film.

Feature Film Creative Producing Fellows receive a grant of $10,000 per participating project with $5000 to spend towards a living stipend and $5000 to spend towards pre-production.
