Now in its 36th year, The 2020 Sundance Film Festival is the premier showcase for U.S. and international independent film, held each January in and around Park City, Utah. Presenting dramatic and documentary films from emerging and established artists, innovative short films, filmmaker forums and panels, live music performances and film composer events, cutting-edge media and art installations, engaging community and student programs, the Festival brings together today’s most original storytellers in a vibrant community.
Sundance Institute is a non-profit organization that actively advances the work of risk-taking storytellers. Founded in 1981 by Robert Redford in the mountains of Sundance, Utah, the Institute secures a space for independent artists to explore their stories free from commercial and political pressures. Through year-round programs, the Institute seeks to discover and develop independent artists and audiences and to provide a platform for artists to present their works to a global audience—the Sundance Film Festival.
