FILM INDEPENDENT'S 2006 PRODUCERS LAB DEADLINE: AUGUST 14
Film Independent is now accepting submissions for its annual Producers Lab that will take place in Los Angeles during October and November 2006. The
deadline for submissions is August 14, 2006 (postmarked).
Sponsored by Technicolor, Film Independent?s Producers Lab is an intensive seven-week program designed to help filmmakers develop skills as creative independent producers. Lab fellows develop a strategy and formal action plan for bringing their projects to fruition -including a budget, schedule, and business plan. Fellows have one-on-one meetings with established producers, directors, and other industry professionals who act as advisors to them on their specific projects.
A maximum of ten producers are accepted into the program each year. Some projects that have gone through the Labs are the following: So Yong Kim's Sundance-winning film, In Between Days; Jessica Sanders' After Innocence, short listed for the Academy Awards' documentary category; Andrea Millers' Dark Matter, currently in production with Val Kilmer and Meryl Streep; Scott Prendergast's Kabluey, currently in production with Lisa Kudrow; Dana Jackson's Park starring Billy Baldwin; Mora Stephens and Joel Stephens' Conventioneers, winner of an Independent Spirit Award; Ted Kroeber's American Gun recently released by IFC Films.

and Amazing), Alison Dickey (Piggie), Matthew Greenfield (The Good Girl),
Jasmine Kosovic (D.E.B.S.), and Shelby Stone (Lackawanna Blues). Past
guest speakers include Craig Emanuel, Debra Grieco, Midge Sanford, Peggy
