Sundance and Adobe Want to Take Young Filmmakers to the 2016 Festival

Posted by at 3:07 pm on October 25, 2015


If you’re a filmmaker between the ages of 18 and 24 and looking for an opportunity to go to Sundance, this online short film challenge might be able to take you there.

The Sundance Institute and Adobe’s Project 1324 have partnered to bring you the What’s Next’s Short Film Challenge, which will award winners a spot in the brand new Sundance Ignite Fellows Program.

They are looking for short films between 1-8 minutes long that are “pure, bold, renegade, independent, innovative, next wave, next breed, and stylistically adventurous,” that also answer (or offer up whatever unique interpretation of) the question, “What’s Next?” Again, films may only be submitted by filmmakers between the ages of 18 and 24.

Five winners will be awarded an Ignite Fellowship, a highly competitive fellowship offering emerging filmmakers mentorship and exposure during the Sundance Film Festival. Fellows also receive a special ticket package for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, which includes a roundtrip flight to Salt Lake City, ground transportation to/from Park City, lodging, and a meal stipend.

You can submit your short films on October 29th once the challenge’s website opens. Keep in mind that your submission will also be showcased on the site and audience favorites will receive special consideration. This means you should submit as early as possible to give the Project 1324 community enough time to check it out! Submissions close on November 16, 2015. Click here for more info.
