1984 Sundance Film Festival

This marked a transitional year. The video portion of the Festival was discontinued. The film program was very strong. However, it became apparent that the Festival needed the support of an organization that could provide it with year round staffing, financial backing and a network of contacts. Robert Redford expressed his willingness and desire to have Sundance Institute provide a home for the Festival and to strengthen the event's focus on independent film.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
