Digital Diaspora Family Reunion

Institute History

  • 2014 Sundance Film Festival


The innovative transmedia companion to Through a Lens Darkly, Digital Diaspora Family Reunion (DDFR) has reimagined the social network by inviting audiences to upload and share their own family photos, thereby building a “One World, One Family” album. Thirteen events, five cities, 600 interviews, and 6,500 photographs later, DDFR comes to the Sundance Film Festival. Festivalgoers can upload images to Instagram at #DDFRtv, or bring them to New Frontier to participate in a special live event on Monday, January 20, at 6:00 p.m.

For the full experience, visit this installation and attend a screening of the companion film, Through a Lens Darkly, in the New Frontier program.

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.
