Sundance Institute and Adobe Project 1324 are teaming up to find the next 15 Sundance Ignite Fellows – emerging filmmakers who are creating stories that bring their passion, voice, and perspective to life.

We’re asking filmmakers to submit a one-to-eight minute short that shows us What stories ignite you? and demonstrates the power of film to ignite creativity, passion, and impact.

The year-long Sundance Ignite Fellowship is open to emerging documentary and narrative filmmakers between ages 18 and 24. It kicks off with a free trip to the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, where fellows attend a special, curated program. Throughout the year-long fellowship, fellows will work with their Sundance Alumni mentor, attend select Sundance Institute programs, be eligible for internships, receive additional creative and professional development opportunities, and a complimentary Adobe Creative Cloud subscription from Adobe Project 1324.
