Boulder Filmmaking Incubator - A Resource for Independent and Emergent Filmmakers

Thanks for Visiting 

Founded in 2006 by award winning producer/director Marianne Leviton, the Boulder Filmmaking Incubator is a leader in producing independent movies… from short films to feature length… from narratives to documentaries… and winning numerous awards along the way.  

A reliable resource for Independent and Emergent filmmakers, the Boulder Filmmaking Incubator provides an environment where people from all disciplines of filmmaking can meet to share experiences, problem solve, bounce around ideas, and cooperate to make their films a reality. Our members (Incies) find that the opportunity to network and collaborate can be invaluable in helping a project reach its highest level of quality. 

Our meetings are always chock full of discussions of future projects and screenings of members' work.  Several times a year we bring in industry speakers such as:  Soundman/Walking Dead; 1rst AD Gray's Anatomy; Colorado Film Commissioner; Steadicam Expert; Hollywood Script Consultant; Producers and Directors who work on Independent Features and National TV shows.

Working on your own projects? You may screen your work at our monthly meetings. Want to work on a project? Network with other filmmakers to get on board. Or… participate in one of the Incubator’s showcase group projects.

Come join us!


The Incubator meets bi-monthly at the Boulder Digital Arts facility in Boulder, Colorado.  Registration is required.  Go to our Meetup page to sign up for our next meeting.

Participation in the Incubator is intended for serious filmmakers with all levels of experience.  You must be 18 years of age or older to attend.

My Friend's Rubber Ducky - Feedback Screening

Incubator Tonight!
Come prepared to pitch your projects if you are seeking collaborators/crew/muses… And bring in your projects for screening, we’ll get to as many as time allows. 
We are featuring a screening, tonight, of Josh Hyde’s 72 min. film, My Friend’s Rubber Ducky.  The filmmaker is looking for feedback as he prepares for the festival circuit.
My Friend's Rubber Ducky:
In a drunk fit, Joseph kidnaps an old friend who owes him $5,000, enlisting the aid of his hipster girlfriend and stoner roommate.
My Friend's Rubber Ducky is the second feature film for Josh Hyde as a writer/director/editor.
Josh’s filmmaking experience started after he earned his film degree from Southern Illinois University in 2003.  He left for Peru to make a documentary examining a cultural exchange between western medicine and indigenous Peruvian shamanism.
He later interned with Kartemquin Films (Hoop Dreams, Stevie, The Interrupters), then entered the MFA program at Ohio University closely under Croatian director/producer, Rajko Grlic. (Border Post, Josephine, White Roses, Just Between Us)
Hyde returned to Peru to shoot the short film, Chicle, which played at over 50 festivals worldwide. (Berlinale, Tribeca, Hamptons).  The short was expanded into Hyde's first feature film, Postales.  (Edinburgh, River Run, Shanghai)
In 2012, Hyde helped shoot and edit the feature documentary, Sweet Micky for President. (Slamdance, Best Documentary, Jury Prize & Audience Prize, Hot Docs, EdgeFest, Los Angeles)
