Even though we’re separated physically, our Online Meetups allow you to connect with other creators. The Online Meetup begins with everyone viewing works-in-progress by Sundance Co//ab community members then listen and learn from live feedback between the creator and a Sundance Advisor. Afterwards, we all meet and mingle in virtual breakout rooms to discuss our thoughts on the works-in-progress and our own projects.

Join us for our Online Meetup on September 18, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm PT as our artist-in-residence, filmmaker Sheldon Candis, shares his insight and advice as he answers questions from the creators of two works-in-progress selected from the short films posted to the Share Your Work section on Co//ab.

Director, Street Stories: Antonio White
Cincinnati, OH, USA
Chris, a native of Cincinnati, OH, while working in restaurant management had a revelation to quit his job (several jobs in fact before it stuck) and pursue what truly made him happy. For him that meant dedicating himself to filmmaking, journalism and above all storytelling. While he knew he wanted to focus on documentary as an art, he had no idea where that desire would lead. After co-founding the non-profit Cincy Stories, he realized how his love of true stories could be utilized in practical ways to improve his city. A few short documentaries about local residents turned into a large scale multimedia project and that turned into multiple large scale projects, a weekly radio show and a much happier and fulfilled Chris. Now, in addition to his passion for all things storytelling, he has a new passion for giving a voice to those whose experiences are often overlooked in his community and creating new ways to activate those stories for real change. His work with Cincy Stories has gained him nine regional Emmy Awards from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. more...
