On Cinematic Imagination: New Spaces for a New Cinema Culture

How do you establish an environment where originality can flourish? For artists working outside of traditional modes of moviemaking, the creative freedoms and unique perspective found there profoundly influence the cinematic imagination. The resulting work from this important space is exploding on-screen convention and transforming the ambient images of our everyday lives. Join New Frontier artist Doug Aitken (Sleepwalkers), filmmaker Isaac Julien (Derek), and moderator Thelma Golden, curator of Harlem's Studio Museum, for this stimulating discussion.

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.
