Application for the SmashCut Film Lab - Season 7

To apply for the SmashCut Film Lab, please fill out the form below and upload the appropriate documents as requested.

The process is entirely digital. All fields with a red asterisk must be completed.

You also must submit a resume, a treatment for the story you wish to produce, and a creative sample (all explained below). You may apply either as an individual or as part of a team. (How that works is explained below and also on the SmashCut Film Lab webpage.) Each member of a prospective team must submit his or her own application. If you don't have a teammate with whom you wish to apply, you can apply as a "free agent" and, if you are accepted, we will match you with someone else who has complementary skills and sensibilities.

Clicking the "Submit" button will complete the process, sending us your full application with supporting materials.

The deadline for the SmashCut Film Lab application is noon May 31st, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.!
