BMI celebrated its 10th year of sponsoring the Sundance Composers Lab, which was held this past summer in Provo, Utah. The lab is an intensive film-music program run by the Sundance Institute, where six composer Fellows work with directors in Sundance’s Directors Lab and get guidance from a panel of industry experts. BMI’s Doreen Ringer Ross is an original advisor for the program. This year’s fellows included Gingger Shankar, Derrick Hodge, Enis Rotthoff, Shahzad Ali Ismaily, Jeremy Flower and Jeff Toyne.
