If you would like some help on your first feature-length film project, IFP has an offer for you to help in completion, marketing and distribution.
IFP’s unique year-long mentorship program supports first-time feature directors when they need it most: through the completion, marketing and distribution of their films. Focusing exclusively on low-budget features (<$1million), this highly immersive program provides filmmakers with the technical, creative and strategic tools necessary to launch their films – and their careers.
Through the Labs, IFP works to ensure that talented emerging voices receive the support, resources, and industry exposure necessary to reach audiences. Open to all first time feature documentary and narrative directors with films in post-production.
Applications are now open. The deadline for documentary submissions is March 6th, 2015, while the deadline to apply for narrative submissions is April 3rd, 2015.
