The International Film Festival Oaxaca FilmFest announced today that Sundance Institute, through its Sundance Ignite Program for 18-to-24-year-old filmmakers, will host three panels during Oaxaca FilmFest this upcoming October 2016.

This portion of the 8-day Festival is especially popular among film students and filmmakers and has an ideology in direct alignment with that of the Sundance Ignite program, with the goal to provide film students and filmmakers with unique opportunities to develop and showcase their creativity.

The program offers individuals ages 18-24 the Ignite Ticket Package, an exclusive chance to see the newest films at the Sundance Film Festival and the Ignite Fellows Program, a competitive and intensive experience designed to provide artistic and professional development, mentorship, and industry exposure.

Some of these resources will now be presented to attendees of Oaxaca FilmFest in its academic programs: Young Industry and New Industry.

Sundance Ignite panels will be hosted at Oaxaca FilmFest academic programs during Oaxaca FilmFest 7.

Oaxaca FilmFest is passionately committed to providing audiences, filmmakers, and screenwriters around the globe with excellent and unique cinematic experiences and education.

This will be the seventh edition of what Indie Rocks called “A new star is born in the Film Festival Universe”; and what MovieMaker Magazine named as one of their top 50 Festivals for the last two years.

Oaxaca FilmFest will be held October 8th-15th and more details about Young Industry, New Industry as well as Sundance Institute’s Sundance Ignite Panels and invitees will be announced in the coming months.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
