Between the Ages of 18-24? Apply to the Sundance Ignite Short Film Challenge
Feel like you’re too young to get noticed? Let’s change that.
While there are numerous opportunities for filmmakers looking to begin their careers with a solid foundation and support system, few this good are age-specific. Sundance Institute and Adobe Project 1324 are teaming up once again for the Sundance Ignite program, a year-long mentorship program for 15 filmmakers between the ages of 18-24.
Created as a way to bring younger filmmakers into the growing Sundance family, Sundance Ignite seeks filmmakers with short films that show “what stories ignite you and demonstrate the power of film to ignite creativity, passion, and impact.” Below is a sample of last year’s fellows.
Sounds like a great, productive time, yeah? If you meet the age requirements, you can apply here. You will need to submit a one-to-eight minute short film (narrative or documentary-based) that emphasizes the mandate above. You will also need to complete the written portion of the application in order to be considered.
