2018 Sundance Institute Open Borders Fellowship

Designed to support distinctive new voices in world cinema, the Sundance Institute Open Borders Fellowship presented by Netflix includes a development grant, a trip to the 2018 Sundance Film Festival in Park City to receive the award and attend a curated slate of industry meetings, networking opportunities, panels, and screenings. Further, the filmmakers are eligible to receive year-round creative and strategic support from the Sundance Institute Feature Film and Documentary Film programs for their next feature-length project

The Open Borders Fellowship reflects the Institute's longstanding commitment to world cinema. Through Labs and Workshops, financial support, and public engagement, the Institute's Artist Programs strive to support underrepresented voices in regions of the world going through socio-political transitions and where freedom of expression is challenged.

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.
