Introducing Sundance fellow Ponsoldt
Sundance Institute has awarded the the 2007 Lynn Auerbach Screenwriting Fellowship to "Refresh, Refresh" writer James Ponsoldt. The unproduced feature follows three teenage boys struggling to deal with their fathers' service in the Iraq War. Ponsoldt will receive a cash stipend, a Sundance screenplay reading and the advisory services of scribes John August and Ron Nyswaner throughout his fellowship year. Ponsoldt developed his work at the Institute's Screenwriters Lab in Utah this summer.
