IFP Announces Fellows for 8th Narrative Lab

he New York-based filmmaker organization, the Independent Filmmaker Project, has announced the 2012 Narrative Independent Filmmaker Lab Lineup.  The lab, which gives first-time feature directors a year-long fellowship, selected its ten fellows from a national pool of submissions.  The lab at the center of the fellowship will take place from June 11-14 in New York City.

IFP’s narrative lab focuses on low-budget features, with budgets below $1 million.  Past projects have included Lucy Mulloy’s “Una Noche,” Terence Nance’s “An Oversimplification of Her Beauty,” and Dee Rees’ “Pariah.”  The 2012 lab will be IFP’s eighth edition.

Films included in this year’s lab include Stacie Passon’s story of a lesbian prostitute mother “Concussion” (produced by Rose Troche) and Leah Meyerhoff’s “I Believe in Unicorns.”
