What is Film Independent’s Documentary Lab?
Held in Los Angeles in April, the Film Independent Documentary Lab is an intensive five-week program designed to help filmmakers who are currently in post-production on their feature-length documentary films. Through a series of meetings and workshops, the Documentary Lab provides creative feedback and story notes to participating filmmakers, while helping them to strategize for the completion, distribution, and marketing of their films.
Additionally, the program serves to advance the careers of its Fellows by making introductions to film professionals who can advise on both the craft and business of documentary filmmaking. Lab Fellows attend multiple guest-speaker sessions with established documentary directors, producers, and editors, and each is paired with an experienced Creative Advisor who can provide support and insight as the Fellows ready their projects for release.
Applications for the 2016 Documentary Lab are OPEN.
Application deadline: December 7, 2015 – APPLY HERE
