LOS ANGELES – Sundance Institute’s Native American and Indigenous Program announced an open call for applications for its 2014 Native Lab Fellowship, a two-stage artist development program that begins with a filmmaker’s lab in May 2014.

Four projects are selected each year for the Fellowship program, which is open to Native American, Native Hawaiian and Alaska Native film artists.

“We encourage artists from all tribal communities to submit their work to the Native Lab for consideration,” Bird Runningwater, Sundance Institute Native American and Indigenous Program director, said. “The creative environment Sundance Institute fosters gives filmmakers an opportunity to shape their work, find a unique voice and share different perspectives through film.”

Applicants are asked to submit a proposal for an original narrative, documentary short or feature length film. Applications are selected based on their originality, artistic voice and potential to advance toward production. Storylines do not require a Native American theme. Applications must be completed by Feb. 3, 2014.
