Doc Storytelling: Developing Your Story (Jul. 2020)

Live Online Learning

The application period for the course has ended. Watch the Sundance Co//ab newsletter for updates on future course offerings.

Learn the steps for developing a feature documentary--from conception and prep through production--with an accomplished documentary filmmaker as your guide. Participants should come prepared for this eight-week live, online course with a project that you plan to produce and/or direct. Crafting a compelling proposal for funders is a key goal of the course. Sessions include presentations, discussion, interactive exercises, and a panel discussion with documentary funders. The course concludes with a one-on-one mentoring session focused on your project.

The course will be held live in our virtual classroom. All sessions are recorded for registered participants who are unable to attend live.
