2017 Non-Fiction Critics Fellowship

Developed to address a dearth of nuanced and in-depth critical writing about nonfiction films. Each fellow receives financial support as well as participation in process-oriented conferences and workshops, including the Sundance Institute’s Documentary Edit and Story Labs. During the course of the year are encouraged to explore new modes of nonfiction criticism. The Fellowship is developed in partnership with the Jonathan B. Murray Center for Documentary Journalism at the University of Missouri School of Journalism.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
