This sounds really cool. Two writers will be picked to go to Sundance to meet Mudbound producer Cassian Elwes. The trip will be all expenses paid as well, but only for two lucky writers. Here's more info:

The 2022 Cassian Elwes Independent Screenwriting Fellowship at the Sundance Film Festival is now accepting submissions. “Mudbound” producer Cassian Elwes and The Black List are partnering up for the ninth time to grant up to two writers an all-expenses-paid trip to next year’s edition of Sundance and the opportunity to meet with Elwes.

Designed to “encourage and identify new talent in the field of independent cinema,” the fellowship is open to “unrepresented feature writers with an independent sensibility who have made less than $5,000 in aggregate in their film or television writing careers.” They will be able to “opt into consideration via the Black List website until November 15, 2021. At that time, the Black List will choose ten screenplays imbued with an independent spirit by unrepresented screenwriters, which will be sent on to Mr. Elwes for his consideration. The fellowship recipients will be selected by Mr. Elwes by calendar year’s end,” a press release details.....

Oh nice, I'm probably a bit late to try and jump into this, but I will keep this in mind for the future. Maybe they will be doing this type of promotion in the future.
