Do The Right Thing (Intention and Rewards)

In an industry of highly motivated people with immense pressure to succeed (creatively and financially), has the moral dimension of the work been pushed aside? Most independent filmmakers approach a film with the best intentions. But have we come to tacitly dismiss or even fail to recognize important ethical dilemmas? Have some of the abuses built into the process become almost institutionalized?

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.
