Sundance Film Festival unveils plans

A healthy mix?

When the Sundance Film Festival first announced plans for its 2021 event, some thing were made clear. The event was going to be cut down to seven days and the fest would be taking place online. Today, Sundance announced an ambitious plan that will enable it to promote social distancing while also allowing people to attend screenings live.

Not only will festival goers be able to watch screenings online, there will also be screenings at drive in theaters, art house cinemas, and cultural organizations. Sundance will stick to normal operating procedure and have movies premiere throughout the day. First screenings will begin on Thursday January 28. Going forward, there will be showing throughout each day of the event. Those who attend the Sundance Film Festival will also have the opportunity to participate in the live Q&As that follow. There are 70 plus films currently scheduled for the event.

“Even under these impossible circumstances artists are still finding paths to make bold and vital work in whatever ways they can,” says Tabitha Jackson, in her first year as Festival Director. “So Sundance, as a festival of discovery, will bring that work to its first audiences in whatever ways we can. The core of our Festival in the form of an online platform and socially distanced cinematic experiences is responsive to the pandemic and gives us the opportunity to reach new audiences, safely, where they are. And thanks to a constellation of independent cinema communities across the U.S. we are not putting on our Festival alone. At the heart of all this is a belief in the power of coming together, and the desire to preserve what makes a festival unique — a collaborative spirit, a collective energy, and a celebration of the art, artists, and ideas that leave us changed.”
