2023 Feature Film Producers Track (Fellowship and Intensive)



2023 Feature Film Producers Track Application

Applicants to the Feature Film Producers Track will be considered for two opportunities: the Producers Lab & Fellowship (yearlong program, commencing July 2023) and the Producers Intensive (two-day program in fall 2023).

The Feature Film Producers Fellowship is a yearlong program designed to nurture emerging producers with project-specific support through the Producers Lab and Producers Summit, a grant to support the producer and the project, year-round mentorship from a dedicated industry mentor, and ongoing support from Sundance Institute staff. The program is designed to hone emerging producers’ creative instincts and evolve their communication and problem-solving skills at all stages of their next feature film.

The Feature Film Producers Intensive provides emerging producers with the opportunity to hone their craft in a two-day concentrated workshop. The program provides creative, strategic, and professional development support for producers from traditionally underrepresented communities who are poised to take the next step in their filmmaking career. Like the residency lab, the intensive features interactive group sessions and roundtable conversations with producer and industry advisors on topics including the producer/director collaboration, pitching, legal and business affairs, packaging and financing, budgeting, and sustainability, and fosters community among the participants.

There is a separate Producers Track application for producers working on a documentary film. More information can be found about support for nonfiction projects on the Documentary Film Program page.
