Sundance Institute and Festival

The Sundance Film Festival is held each January in Park City, Salt Lake City, and Ogden, Utah. The festival began in 1978 as a means to attract more filmmakers to the state but has grown into the world’s largest international independent film festival, showcasing new films from American and international filmmakers.

Each year, the Sundance Film Festival selects 200 films for exhibition from more than 9,000 submissions. More than 50,000 people attend screenings in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Sundance, Utah. In addition to discovering filmmaking’s newest talent through the Festival’s program of documentary, dramatic, and short films, Festival-goers experience live music performances, panel discussions with leading filmmakers and industry figures, cutting-edge media installations, parties celebrating the festival community, and more.

Sundance Institute Radar Magazine

“Sundance Institute Radar” is the publication that is utilized by the Sundance Institute to emphasize its role as a discovery engine for independent storytelling in film, theatre, and new media. This perfect bound, high quality magazine format publication is published annually and covers all aspects of the institute’s programmatic work and ultimate mission to support independent film and provide the industry with the resources.  The next edition will appear at the festival in January 2016, continuing its editorial focus on the creativity, diversity and artistry of the film, theatre, music, and new media artists that the Institute supports.

Since 1981, Sundance Institute has evolved to become an internationally-recognized nonprofit organization that actively advances the work of risk-taking storytellers worldwide. Originally founded by Robert Redford in the mountains of Sundance, Utah, Sundance Institute has always provided a space for independent artists to explore their stories free from commercial and political pressures. By providing year-round creative and financial support for the development of original stories for the screen and stage, Sundance Institute remains committed to its mission to discover and develop independent artists and audiences across the globe.
