Sundance fills Screenwriting Lab

12 films selected for annual workshop at fest

The Sundance Institute has selected 12 feature film projects for the annual January Screenwriters Lab running Jan. 9-14 at the Sundance Resort in Utah.

This year’s Fellows include filmmakers from the U.S., the Middle East, India, Latin America and Europe.

“With humor, irony, pathos and a fierce determination to tell their stories, each project is rooted in the writer’s passionate desire to fully engage in the complicated, ever-changing world we live in,” said Michelle Satter, Director of the Feature Film Project.

The lab will offer screenwriters the opportunity to work on their feature film scripts with support from established writers and creative advisors including Lab Artistic Director Scott Frank, Marcos Bernstein, Naomi Foner, Nelson George, Michael Goldenberg, Deena Goldstone, Erik Jendresen, Etgar Keret, Kasi Lemmons, Doug McGrath, Walter Mosley, Ron Nyswaner, Tom Rickman, Susan Shilliday, Zach Sklar, Dana Stevens and Bill Wheeler.

The projects selected join a list of Feature Film Program-supported pics, 10 of which will screen at the 2009 Sundance Film Fest. They include selections from the Dramatic Competition and World Cinema Competition.
