Indie Film Producers Tap into IFC Media Lab

The Independent Film Channel has launched the IFC Media Lab, an online destination for aspiring filmmakers to post and receive feedback about their independently produced films and compete for the chance to have them broadcast throughout the channel's regular programming lineup in the spring.

Additionally, a separate on-air package of the best shorts will air at four- to six-week periods throughout the year. Led by IFC director of marketing and promotion Evan Fleischer, who played an intricate part in the launch of the network's educational initiative "Film School," online members also can create a film profile, build a home page and view and rate other shorts of 6 minutes or less.

The site, which offers free membership, currently has 4,000 registered users and more than 400 films submitted. How it works: "Register now and take advantage of all that the Media Lab has to offer. View and rank films from independent filmmakers, upload your own films, compete for a chance to screen your film on IFC, and much more."
