Hey all,

My film, The New Year Parade, was fortunate enough to participate in the IFP Narrative Rough Cut Lab in 2007. It was a game changer for us - providing feedback on the cut music, helping us devise a fest strategy, setting us up to meet fest programmers and sales agents, and even sitting 10 of us down with John Sayles and Maggie Renzi for a few hours! The whole experience was incredible! It opened the doors to our screening at Slamdance & SXSW and our little $7,000 film is now nominated for an Independent Spirit Award. So, I feel very grateful to IFP and wanted to spread the word.

Anyway, the labs are open for submissions and I thought it worth passing the info on for other first and second time doc and narrative filmmakers who currently are in the rough cut stage. If you have questions, drop a line: dulouz@gmail.com

IFP'S 2010 INDEPENDENT FILMMAKER LABS OPEN FOR SUBMISSIONS
Documentary Lab – April 12–16, 2010; Application deadline FEBRUARY 12
Narrative Lab – June 7–11, 2010; Application deadline MARCH 26

IFP’s Independent Filmmaker Labs is the only program in the U.S. supporting first-time feature directors at the crucial rough cut/post production stage. The Labs play a pivotal role in helping emerging filmmakers to realize the full potential of their stories – and their careers. Through five days of workshops, mentorship, networking opportunities and creative guidance on their project, Lab filmmakers are able to gain editorial feedback, assess strategic partnerships & marketing opportunities, and evaluate their options for maximizing the reach of their film via festivals, traditional theatrical roll-outs or through innovative, DIY distribution methods.

Drawing from a national candidate pool, 20 projects (10 documentaries and 10 narratives) are selected for this year-long Lab fellowship which, includes the five-day Lab in New York City, one-on-one mentorship with industry innovators and icons, and during IFP’s Independent Film Week in September - pre-scheduled meetings with potential buyers, sales agents and festival programmers and inclusion in a Lab “Sneak Preview” Showcase presentation.
