2003 Sundance Film Festival

The unseasonably warm weather this year attracted record attendance to the Festival that introduced audiences to feature films including THE COOLER, IN AMERICA, LAUREL CANYON, PIECES OF APRIL, RAISING VICTOR VARGAS, THE SECRET LIVES OF DENTISTS, and THIRTEEN. The power of the non-fiction form was illustrated with documentaries ranging from THE MURDER OF EMMITT TILL to THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND to TO LIVE IS BETTER THAN TO DIE, a depiction of AIDS in China which has never been shown in that country.

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.
