2018 Sundance Ignite Fellows Program

The Ignite Fellows Program is a competitive and intensive yearlong Sundance Institute experience designed to provide artistic and professional development, mentorship, and industry exposure for emerging filmmakers ages 18 to 24 commencing during the Sundance Film Festival.

For the third year, fellows were selected from their submissions of one- to eight-minute original films and their written applications. This year’s prompt asked, “What stories ignite you?” Submissions were evaluated by Institute staff, Adobe Project 1324, and industry mentors and finalists were selected based on their original voice, diverse storytelling and rigor in their filmmaking pursuits.

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.
