Feature Film Support & Financing

Would you like to join the NYU Production Lab’s Slate, gaining access to numerous resources for NYU storytellers?  Each year, the Production Lab selects and financially invests in top-quality content from emerging artists in the NYU community. This content currently includes narrative features and feature-length documentaries.  For support with episodic projects, please see our Development Studio: Episodic

The Production Lab prioritizes projects with interdisciplinary NYU cast and crew, as well as projects with Director and/or Producer already attached. The Lab promotes the production of a diverse slate of projects from diverse voices and will pay special attention to storytellers and material with little or no prior industry exposure. Check out our previously selected projects here.  

Current students and alumni from any school or program at NYU are encouraged and eligible to apply. Previous applicants are welcome to reapply with evidence of changes and progress.  Check out our FAQs or attend our info session for more information.

Please note that we have a lengthy and rigorous selection process; funding is typically released to selected finalists at the earliest in May of the following year.
