Migrating Imaginations: Visions from the Art and Music Worlds Transform the Silver Screen

This year’s Festival features some of the leading names in other mediums—both visual art and music—crossing over into the world of feature filmmaking. This migration brings exciting new perspectives to the form, often resulting in surprising new cinematic languages. Join a panel of leading artists and musicians as we explore the intersections between art and film and the unique motivations behind working in multiple and sometimes contradictory mediums. Moderated by Elvis Mitchell.

Panelists: Shirin Neshat (artist/filmmaker, Women Without Men); and Pipilotti Rist (artist/filmmaker, Pepperminta).

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.
