Spaced Out


Institute History

  • 2020 Sundance Film Festival


Bring your swimsuit to the pool at Festival Headquarters, where an underwater VR headset and snorkel awaits to transport you aboard a voyage from Earth to the moon. Sutu’s viscerally crafted colorscape combines with archival recordings of the Apollo 11 mission to create this magic trick that takes you on an extraordinary journey within—floating in the water with VR goggles becomes a space simulation as the absence of gravity immerses all the senses.

Open to credential holders Sat. 1/25–Thu. 1/30, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. at Festival Headquarters (Sheraton Park City, 1895 Sidewinder Dr.)
Bring your swimsuit; towels available on-site.

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.
