'Whether narrative or documentary, innovative storytelling through film involves a keen eye, an editor's touch, the appropriate voice and also the right sound,' Peter Golub, director of Sundance Institute Film Music Program, said.
'The goal of our Composers Lab is to give emerging composers and film-makers a creative environment both to collaborate on and to explore the importance of music in their projects. Many first-time film-makers have never before had the opportunity to work in this medium.'
