Southern Circuit Specials

Calling all Filmmakers!

IFP is currently seeking first-time filmmakers with features in 
post-production (rough assembly through fine cut) for this year’s Independent Filmmaker Labs
Supporting filmmakers when they need it most – through the completion, marketing & distribution of their first feature films - IFP’s Independent Filmmaker Labs is the only FREE program in the U.S. for first-time feature directors navigating how to build audience and stand out in a crowded marketplace. In the last three years, they have shepherded projects that have gone on to distribution deals at Focus Features, Radius / The Weinstein Company, Oscilloscope, BBC, PBS, and HBO, as well as prestigious premieres at Venice, Toronto, IDFA, Sundance, Rotterdam, Berlin, and SXSW.

Alums in the News!

Take a tip from Ashley Sabin and David Redmon (currently on tour with their film, Girl Model), and check out Cinereach, a nonprofit interested in funding "Vital Stories, Artfully Told" as described on NPR this morning. Read the online article or listen to the replay here.

Congratulations to Mynette Louie, winner of the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards' Piaget Producers Award. Mynette's film, Children of Invention, toured with Southern Circuit in the 2010/2011 season. We are very excited that Louie's work is continuing to be recognized.
