Brave New World: Entertainment and Social Change

The question of whether Entertainment can change the world is not a new one. But when new technologies evolve, models of distribution are reconceived, and the dynamic between content and audience changes dramatically (through interactivity, personalization, the formation of web communities) the age-old question of social empowerment through film becomes provocative again. Where will new delivery platforms lead? Will the content they facilitate and the audience they grow actually play a role in shaping political and social consciousness? Can greater public participation in key issues be fostered by an industry that still answers to the bottom line?

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.
