Project 1324 is thrilled to announce the Fellows of this years’ Sundance Ignite Challenge. These 15 emerging filmmakers, chosen from over 1,200 submissions, created powerful films that ignite imagination.

Films are a deep rooted part of our lives. They transport us beyond our own perspective into different cultures, realities, and experiences. Their stories allow us to see life, whether real or imagined, from the angle of the director.

Soon these directors will be headed to the 2019 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah to start their year-long fellowship with leading filmmakers across the industry and join a larger creative family.

Cozy up in your favorite chair, grab a bag of popcorn, and enjoy all the inspiring films here.
