Correa will be developing her feature The Huntress, based In Juarez, Mexico, where violence against women goes unnoticed and unpunished, an unlikely heroine emerges to seek justice. This project is the recipient of the Feature Film Program Latina Fellowship.

 

The Sundance Institute's 2018 Screenwriters Lab is a unique and rigorous program. The initial lab is an immersive five-day writers' workshop that takes place at the Sundance Resort in Utah, January 12-17, 2018. This Lab brings sixteen independent screenwriters together with accomplished writers in an environment that encourages the art and craft of writing and creative risk-taking. Each screenwriter has one-on-one story sessions with Creative Advisors on their feature film scripts during the lab and then receives a year-round continuum of customized creative and tactical support for their project throughout 2018.


Correa is no stranger to prestigious competitions. Her film, LA Casa de Beatriz, was selected for the top prize at the DGA Student Film Award. She is also a recipient of the Princess Grace Award.
