Presented by Adobe, the yearlong Sundance Ignite x Adobe Fellowship Program is open to 18 to 25-year-aged emerging documentary and narrative filmmakers. The fellowship begins with a weeklong lab orienting filmmakers to the fellowship and year ahead. For the rest of the year, fellows work with their mentors, attend select Sundance Institute programs, enjoy eligibility for internships, receive additional creative and professional development opportunities, and attend the Sundance Film Festival. The fellows also receive a complimentary membership to Adobe Creative Cloud. To date, 80 fellows have gone through the program, and ten alumni have had their short films selected to screen at the Sundance Film Festival.
The 2023 Sundance Ignite x Adobe Short Film Challenge will be open until February 14, 2023.
