Meet the Fellows from the Sundance Ignite Program

 

“I don’t even want to sleep – I just keep trying to soak it all in”

– Kevin Rios, Sundance Ignite Fellow

The Sundance Ignite program is an aspiring filmmaker’s dream. The competitive year-long fellowship offers mentorship and artist development opportunities for emerging filmmakers (18-24 years of age) throughout the year succeeding the Sundance Film Festival.

We’re super proud to support the #SundanceIgnite fellowship program. Of the 15 Ignite Fellows selected by Sundance Institute this year, five of those fellows are winners of the Sundance Ignite “What’s Next?” short film challenge.

Take a look at this new video produced by our friends at YABE Media to see how important and vital opportunities like Sundance Ignite are for rising filmmakers. Definitely check out the winning “What’s Next?” challenge films and stay tuned for more on the Fellows as we document their year with the Sundance Ignite program.
