Finalists Announced for 2007 Sundance/NHK International Filmmakers Awards

Wednesday, November 29----The Sundance Institute and NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) announced today the 12 finalists for the 2007 Sundance/NHK International Filmmakers Awards. These annual awards recognize emerging artists in international cinema and are presented to film directors from four global regions (Europe, Latin America, the United States and Japan) to support them in realizing their next projects. The four winners, selected by members of an international jury, will be announced during the 2007 Sundance Film Festival at the Festival Awards Ceremony on Saturday, January 27.

The winning director from each region will receive a $10,000 award and a guarantee from NHK to purchase the Japanese television broadcast rights upon completion of their project. In addition, Sundance Institute will work closely with the award recipients throughout the year, providing ongoing resources and support in seeking out opportunities to finance and distribute their projects.
