IFP narrative lab kicks off

Ten projects chosen for 2010 mentorship program

A Gaza-set love story, a reality-shifting widower and a gruesome secret in rural Georgia are among the subjects of the ten narrative projects chosen for IFP’s annual Independent Filmmaker Labs.

Participating projects in the mentorship program are first features with budgets of less than $1 million, each of which has shot most of its footage but has not finished post-production.

An initial five days of workshops for the narrative lab began Monday and runs through Friday, providing tech, creative and strategic support. Upcoming sessions including labs on strategy and networking and on distribution, along with upcoming meetings with potential buyers.

This week three members from each project will meet for the lab, to be led this year by producers Scott Macaulay and Susan Stover and director and distribution specialist Jon Reiss.

A range of producers and post-production experts will lead individual workshops. Projects also will have one-to-one mentors, including Stover (“High Art”), Michael Roiff (“Waitress”), Frida Torresblanco (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) and Howard Gertler (“World’s Greatest Dad”).

The 10 narrative selections join 10 previously announced docu projects that also participate in lab fellowships.
