Times are tough right now, but the Sundance Institute is showing up for creatives in a big way.
Over a month ago, the Sundance Institute issued its response to how it will weather the COVID-19 pandemic, establishing a plan that seeks to support filmmakers through coalition-building, financial assistance, and distance learning through its new digital platform Sundance Co//ab.
But Sundance is taking things a step further by announcing that it's giving filmmakers access to its entire library of Master Classes and webinars on Sundance Co//ab entirely for free.
Previously priced at $75, these recordings feature leading creators offering insight into many different aspects of the film industry, from financing to artistic activism. And you get it all from the safety and comfort of your own home.
Here are a few particularly exciting offerings from Sundance Co//ab:
- The Duplass Brothers on their $3 Film
- Art is Activism with Ava DuVernay
- Crowdfunding Strategies with Kickstarter
- Creating Branded Content with Refinery29’s Stacy Fuller
- Comedy Writing for Features with Victoria Strouse
- From Short to Feature Film with Jim Cummings
Sundance Co//ab isn't just a place to learn about making films—it's a place to actually make them. Every month, participants are given the chance to enter their work for a chance to win a number of prizes, including a one-on-one mentorship with a Sundance advisor.
Ready to get your learn on? Head on over to Sundance Co//ab to learn more.

I’ve been trying out the Sundance's Co//ab Master Classes. They’re very cool! But some of the videos are hard to play or don’t play at all.
But, of the few I been able to play, My fav so far is Meg LeFauve (wrote CAPTAIN MARVEL & Pixar’s INSIDE OUT). In the 1st 30 min. Of her video she gives up pearls + the goods of her experience with Pixar’s workflow!
Thank you for the free sign-up tip!

"Art is Activism" lol. JUST WHAT WE NEED MORE OF. How about mentoring a kid, or feeding some people, or creating some jobs? The only activism we need now is encouraging people to get off the internet and show up for each other.
