2021 Sundance Film Festival: Asia

The Sundance Film Festival: Asia is an expansion of the Institute’s programming in the region, further championing and promoting visibility for independent storytelling before a wider global audience. The first edition takes place in late summer 2021 and is hosted in Jakarta, Indonesia, with support from IDN Media, Indonesia’s leading media platform company. Other Asian cities will be explored for future editions.

The programming consists of independent films from the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, a delegation of filmmakers (travel and public health permitting), new Sundance Institute Lab initiatives for Asian talent in collaboration with XRM Media, as well as Sundance Co//ab experiences designed specifically for the territory.

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.
