13 Independent Feature Film projects from Cuba, Chile, Kenya, the UK and the U.S. have been selected for the 2017 Sundance Institute Directors and Screenwriters Labs in Utah's Wasatch Mountains

The Sundance Institute continues their non-stop work by creating opportunities for international, national and native filmmakers.

Eleven filmmakers will be joining the Sundance Institute for a virtual reality lab taking place over a week in the Utah mountains.


This interactive session of filmmaking will expand the directors and producers abilities outside of traditional cinema, at the same time, giving a platform for new ideas to be voiced.

In addition to those two labs, the Sundance Institute has also recently announced a filmmakers lab taking place this weekend in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This event will feature two unique voices with Erin Lau and Shaandiin Tome.

During the Lab, Fellows work with a cast, crew, and supervising producer to shoot workshop versions of scenes from their short films under the expert creative mentorship of Program alumni and other established industry professionals and Program staff.
