SFTV is proud to welcome 18 members into its fifth cohort of the Incubator Lab. Co-curated with Film Independent, the Incubator Lab is a competitive post-graduate program that provides recent alums with the guidance and mentorship of industry professionals as they develop their first post-graduate projects, and bridges the gap between film school and the industry. This year’s cohort was announced at the LA Film Fest’s Diversity Speaks Brunch June 4, 2016.
