The Indie Filmmakers Lab immerses filmmakers in an environment of creativity and innovation where they are encouraged to draw inspiration and ideas from art of all kinds – photography, painting, dance, music – and, with the support of Lab instructors and SFU artists, to push themselves, stretch their minds, and collaborate to realize ideas with a team of peers.
