Each year the Sundance Film Festival selects 200 films from nearly 12,000 submissions around the country and the world for exhibition. More than 50,000 people attend these film screenings in Sundance, and nearby Park City, Salt Lake City, and Ogden, Utah, and next year, you can be there, too! While the Sundance Festival is full of celebrities walking the red carpet, it’s a rare kind of event that’s open to everyone, whether you’re a studio boss, media agent or super-fan, so don’t pass up this extraordinary opportunity to celebrate the independence, discovery and new voices of film!

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.
