Many films get stuck in the finishing phase due to lack of resources for important services such as Sound Mixing, Sound Design, and Color Correction, to name a few.

Each year they select 10 films for their narrative labs, and you can find out how to submit below. More »

If you’re a first time feature director and you’ve got a rough cut, think about applying to the Narrative Lab — you have until April 9. And be sure to check out the below roster of some recent lab graduates, whose festival acceptance roster is a who’s-who of film fests in this country. More »
