Meet the Foreign Press

The independent film community often has its hands full with marketing and distributing films to a domestic audience, but how do foreign markets play a role in the financial life cycle of indie work? How well do specialized films actually do in other countries? And how do our films relate to the perception of American society abroad? At a time when entertainment represents one of America’s most significant exports (and, some would argue, also a form of cultural hegemony), how are our films received by foreign audiences? The foreign press at Sundance has a few thoughts. Moderated by Mike Goodridge.

Note: no ticket is required for this event.

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.
