(June 20, 2018) Stowe Story Labs and SAGindie are pleased to announce the Second Annual SAGindie Fellowship, to be awarded to a top emerging filmmaker of color to attend the 2018 Stowe Story Lab in Stowe, Vermont.

The 4-day Fall Lab is the cornerstone of Stowe Story Lab’s programming. It is held annually at the Helen Day Art Center in Stowe, Vermont and brings selected participants together with top industry mentors to work on craft, demystify the international film and television industry, and help participants get their work made and seen.

This year’s lab will be held September 8 – 11. To learn more about the Lab, please click here

The SAGindie Fellowship covers fees to attend the Lab and provides as well a contribution toward travel and lodging expenses, among other benefits. To learn more about Stowe Story Labs Fellowships, click here.

Stowe Story Labs is reopening its application season for a short window to allow any screenwriter, filmmaker, or creative producer interested in the SAGindie Fellowship to apply to this Fall’s Lab by clicking here, using code SAGindie, to reduce the 'out of season' application fee to below the regular fee. This window will be open until July 15.

“We are excited to partner again with SAGindie,” said David Rocchio, President and Founder of Stowe Story Labs. “We are 100% aligned on mission, which is to support filmmakers to make meaningful work and bend the world a bit through film. We appreciate SAGindie’s commitment to our work,” he said.

“Independent filmmaking has long been an avenue for marginalized voices to tell their stories,” said Darrien Michele Gipson, SAGindie Executive Director. “We are so excited to once again partner with Stowe Story Labs to help an emerging storyteller hone their voice,” she said.


Stowe Story Labs is a Vermont-based 501 (c)(3) charity dedicated to helping the world’s best emerging screenwriters, filmmakers and creative producers get work made and seen.

SAGindie is an educational organization that promotes the working relationship between professional actors and passionate independent filmmakers. As a free resource, SAGindie offers filmmakers clarity and kinship by guiding them through the SAG-AFTRA signatory process, making it even easier to hire professional actors, regardless of budget.
