Under the Influence

Institute History

  • 2001 Sundance Film Festival


Part of an ongoing series, this special event hosted by the DGA will highlight the classics of a seminal period of filmmaking, the late 60's-70's, and bridge the gap between the iconoclasts of early filmmaking and the independent filmmakers of today. A screening of an archetypal film will be followed by a conversation between the film's director and imminent filmmaker of our decade.

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.
