Tthe Sundance Institute | YouTube New Voices Lab supports a group of 10 creators developing scripted short-form episodic content for digital platforms (up to 25 minutes in length per episode). This year's Lab will take place November 9-11, 2017 in Los Angeles, where Fellows will work with an exciting group of creators, showrunners and episodic producers to develop their stories in an environment that encourages risk-taking and innovation. At the Lab, Fellows will participate in an intensive writing workshop, one-on-one creative story meetings, writers' rooms, and group conversations about production, post-production, and marketing in the evolving digital landscape.

Following participation in the Lab, Fellows will receive a customized, year-round continuum of support to include ongoing creative and tactical advice from Sundance staff and designated advisors; targeted introductions to agents, managers, attorneys, showrunners, creative producers, executive producers, networks, digital distribution platforms, and others as needed; inclusion in the Sundance Institute alumni community, potential opportunities to observe the writers' rooms of shows currently in production and for ongoing mentorships with episodic writers, directors and producers.
