call for entries: ifp independent filmmaker labs

This is a great opportunity for independent, up-and-coming first-time feature filmmakers trying to finish their project... The IFP Independent Filmmaker Labs supports independent filmmakers when they need it most: through the completion, marketing and distribution of their first feature films.

It's a mentorship program focusing exclusively on low-budget features, giving filmmakers access to support, resources and industry exposure to reach audiences. And they're currently looking for projects to support. Maybe yours. Here's the Call for Entries:

Call for Entries: First Feature Directors with Documentary or Narrative Films in Post-Production

Documentary Deadline: March 11 / Narrative Deadline: April 8

IFP’s Independent Filmmaker Labs are a year-long fellowship supporting independent filmmakers when they need it most: through the completion, marketing, and distribution of their first features. Labs provide community, mentorship, and film-specific strategies to help filmmakers reach their artistic goals, support the film’s launch, and maximize exposure in the global marketplace.

IFP seeks to ensure that at least half of participating projects have an inclusive range of voices in key positions. We especially encourage female and minority directors to apply, as well as filmmakers from outside NY & LA.

Open to all first time documentary and narrative feature directors with films in post-production. Additional information and online application: www.ifp.org/Labs
Anybody who's making an independent film knows that you don't pass up good help when it comes your way. IFP wants to help. Like it says, the documentary deadline is March 11, and the narrative deadline is April 8. For further information, and to submit the online application, go to the IFP website here.
