Sundance Institute Presents Charlotte Shortslab


With the support of John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Carolina Film Community, Sundance Institute will be presenting CHARLOTTE SHORTSLAB –  an educational master class that will be held in the city for the first time in early April 2016 (the exact date is TBD).

Sundance Institute has recognized the important role that short films have in cinema, storytelling and culture and they want to help empower the next generation of artists.

Filmmakers are invited to participate in this seminar of Sundance-organized panels and discussions to offer firsthand insight and access into the world of story development, production, working with cast and crew, and how to get the most out of making a short film.

The goal of the half-day educational workshop is to empower the next wave of emerging artists in the Carolinas by giving them first-hand insight into the basics of developing their idea, makingtheir film, and getting it seen by audiences.

Focusing on narrative short-form storytelling, the event will feature panels, discussions, and screenings with a mix of filmmakers and industry professionals and will conclude with a reception to network with fellow shorts filmmakers.

As you can see, a fantastic event is going to take place! CFC will release more info as it becomes available.
