Recognizing the important role shorts have and will continue to have in cinema, storytelling, and culture, Sundance Institute presents ShortsLab: Seattle to help empower the next generation of artists. Filmmakers are invited to participate in this half-day seminar of Sundance-organized screenings and discussions to offer filmmakers firsthand insight and access into the world of story development, production, and exhibition of narrative short-form storytelling.
Short Film Programmers from the Sundance Film Festival will discuss the film festival world and how shorts fit in. Learn how to navigate festivals for your film and hear behind-the-scenes stories about how films are picked, what to avoid and how you can benefit from festivals as distribution.
Writer/Director Lynn Shelton and cinematographer Ben Kasulke show some of their work and talk about the craft of filmmaking and the fine art of telling a story, not only with words but with images, and how to work with a cast and crew in a fruitful mode of collaboration.
Todd Haynes talks about his impressive, varied career, from early short films to festival favorites and big releases. We discuss how to grow as a filmmaker and storyteller with various budgets and challenges while keeping the core inspiration and meaning intact in a film.
