Selected filmmakers will also get mentorship from renowned indie producers.
Which filmmakers don’t dream of going to Utah’s annual celebration of everything cinema, the Sundance Film Festival? Well, if you are an 18-26-year-old woman who is currently studying for an undergraduate degree in any discipline, you might be able to get a head start.
Thanks to the Horizon Award, aimed at combatting gender disparity in Hollywood by supporting the next generation of female filmmakers, qualified applicants can vie for an all-expenses-paid trip to Sundance 2018 and mentorship with the award’s impressive group of founders. The producers behind the award—Lynette Howell Taylor (Blue Valentine, The Accountant), Christine Vachon (Boys Don’t Cry, Carol) and Cassian Elwes (Dallas Buyers Club, Mudbound)—have real industry credibility and enviable track records, so the opportunity to connect with them is as valuable as the Sundance trip itself.
