2008 Sundance Film Festival

The 2008 Festival furthered its mission of representing international voices by showcasing films from 35 countries, including the first independent feature film ever from Jordan, CAPTAIN ABU RAED. Among the 207 total films from the U.S. and around the world, dramatic features included FROZEN RIVER, SUGAR, and THE WACKNESS along with the documentaries AMERICAN TEEN, MAN ON WIRE, and TROUBLE THE WATER. This year saw a record number of shorts submissions as the Festival's shorts lineup reaffirmed the boundary-pushing possibilities of the genre with MADAME TUTLI PUTLI, I MET THE WALRUS, and SALIM BABA. The Festival website offered more live coverage for audiences to experience the Festival from all over the globe. Each day throughout the Festival a free short was available to watch online, along with other videos and podcasts of highlights from panels to interviews with filmmakers.

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.
