This month Time Warner Foundation grantee Independent Filmmaker Project announced ten narrative projects selected for the 2016 IFP Filmmaker Labs, IFP’s annual fellowship program that has supported first-time feature directors for over ten years. With more than 100+ first-feature filmmakers supported, IFP labs frequently produce critically acclaimed stories that go on to make their mark on the festival circuits of SXSW, Tribeca, LAFF, and more. As part of their ongoing commitment to diversity, this year half of the projects are directed or co-directed by women, and of the 24 attending Fellows attached to these projects, 63% are women.
On May 11-15th, creative teams came together to attend the Time Warner Foundation’s Documentary Lab sessions.
