550 Main St.

The proliferation of digital technologies in the film world has led to lower production costs, created nearly infinite distribution bandwidth, and broken down the bottlenecks that have historically controlled access to that distribution. With the culmination of these forces, we find ourselves in a world where audiences have access to more films than ever. In this brave new world, how can high quality independent films find the audiences they deserve? Presented by Amazon Video Direct

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.
