2023 Sundance Ignite x Adobe Fellowship

The fellowship is a year-round artist program supporting fiction and documentary emerging filmmakers ages 18 to 25 by providing artistic and professional development throughout the stages of their creative process. The 10 fellows were chosen from a global pool of more than 1,000 entrants to the annual Sundance Ignite x Adobe Fellowship Application, in which filmmakers submitted a collection of work that reflected their artistic vision and unique voice. Sundance Institute and Adobe share a mission of identifying and uplifting underrepresented voices and talent from the next generation of filmmakers while contributing to fostering new audiences for independent storytelling.

This year’s Ignite Lab runs for a week through June 30 and is being held for the first time at MASS MoCA in North Adams, MA, introducing filmmakers to the many global opportunities that the program offers. During the full year, fellows work with Sundance Institute alumni mentors, develop relationships within the Ignite community through workshops and ongoing events, attend the Sundance Film Festival, are eligible for internships, and are offered additional creative and professional development opportunities. The fellows also receive an artist grant supported by Adobe and Arison Arts Foundation and a one-year complimentary membership to Adobe Creative Cloud to create, share their stories, and further refine their craft.

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.
