Mike Cahill’s upcoming world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January has become the inaugural recipient of the Dolby Family Sound Fellowship.

The grant is the creation of Sundance Institute and the Dolby Institute, along with the Ray and Dagmar Dolby Family Fund. The fellowship provides a range of post-production resources.

According to a press release, I, Origins was selected due to its “complex canvas and characters in the film, and the particularly intriguing possibilities of using sound and the latest advances in sound technology to increase the impact of the final film experience.”
