In our Insider Sessions, Sundance Institute staff answer your questions and guide you through the process of applying to our labs, grant opportunities and the Sundance Film Festival.
The Sundance Episodic Program is an entry point for emerging scripted fiction writers that includes alumni like Katori Hall (Starz's PVALLEY), Barry Jenkins (Amazon's UNDERGROUND RAILROAD), and Heather Rae (Amazon's OUTER RANGE). We provide artists with the tools, guidance, and industry access to move your projects and careers forward. The Lab is the cornerstone of the program, an immersive six-day opportunity to develop original series under accomplished showrunners, creative producers, and development executives at the Sundance Mountain Resort. Pitch Parlor, is a separate event held in Los Angeles, to showcase alumni and their projects in front of the wider Hollywood industry. So how will your submission cut through and bring you into the fold? Join us for a direct Q&A with the program director and recent alumni who will give you all the pro tips when you're ready to apply! Submissions Open FEBRUARY 9th & Close MARCH 9th.
