Among the many things that Los Angeles-based Film Independent does, besides the high-profile Independent Spirit Awards and the Los Angeles Film Festival, is provide crucial support to independent filmmakers. Every year a select few get chosen to participate in their Documentary Lab, which is designed to help them during the post-production phase on a film.

In the past, participants have gone on to complete excellent work, among them Andrew Droz Palermo & Tracy Droz Tragos, whose "Rich Hill" won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, as well as PJ Raval ("Before You Know It"), Hilla Medalia’s ("Dancing in Jaffa"), Nicholas Wrathall ("Gore Vidal: The United States of Amnesia"), Katherine Fairfax Wright and Malika Zouhali Worrall ("Call Me Kuchu"), Laura Nix and Julia Meltzer ("The Light In Her Eyes") and Nicole Karsin ("We Women Warriors").  

Among this year's mentors are editor Doug Blush ("20 Feet from Stardom"), Laura Gabbert ("No Impact Man"), Linda Goldstein-Knowlton ("Somewhere Between"), Sundance programmer Caroline Libresco ("Sunset Story"), and Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen ("Marwencol"). Guest speakers at the Lab include Peter Broderick on Marketing and Distribution, Michael Donaldson on Legal Issues for Documentarians, and Susan Littenberg on her film "Everything Is Going Fine."
