Sundance Institute/Asian American Feature Film Fellowship

The Asian American Feature Film Fellowship aims to further the presence of Asian American voices in independent film as an extension of Sundance Institute’s ongoing commitment to support a diverse group of emerging artists.

Made possible in part by the A3 Foundation, the Fellowship will support an Asian American writer (or writer-director) on the development of their feature screenplay through participation in a Screenwriters Lab, Screenwriters Intensive, or Creative Producing Summit. See below for additional information regarding the Screenwriters Lab, the Screenwriters Intensive or the Creative Producing Summit.

Writers or writer/directors developing their first or second narrative feature film and of Asian-American descent or with significant themes and/or characters relating to the Asian American experience in their screenplay are eligible to apply.

Slow-WatchesApplications for the 2017 Fellowship have been extended until June 16, 2016. Please proceed to the application instructions here.
