What's Next? Models & Experiments in Indie Distribution

Join us as we showcase films that are capitalizing on the newest opportunities, as well as the distribution companies articulating the clearest visions. Moderated by Scott Kirsner, editor of CinemaTech and contributing writer for Variety.

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.
