Event Details

Sundance isn’t just the name of a top tier film festival, and the Sundance Institute does much more than provide grants. Their array of labs and fellowships provide mentoring and support from the inception of an idea to getting the final work seen by audiences, and they foster relationships that can have long lasting impact on projects and careers. 

Sundance Institute programs can be found for producers, directors, writers, editors and composers, and some are designed for underrepresented filmmakers. The Sundance Institute Theatre Program provides labs and retreats for theatre-makers throughout the year.  

This overview of the Sundance Institute programs in film and theater will be presented by Christopher Hibma, Producing Director of the Theatre Program, and Kristin Feeley, Associate Director of the Sundance Institute Documentary Program. 

ABOUT THE SUNDANCE INSTITUTE 

In 1981, Robert Redford founded Sundance Institute to foster independence and provide a safe harbor for risk-taking new voices. In the organization's inaugural year, 15 emerging filmmakers were invited to Sundance Resort in the mountains of Utah to develop their original independent projects with mentorship from leading writers, directors, and actors.



Sundance Institute has continually evolved as an internationally recognized nonprofit organization that discovers and supports independent film and theatre artists from the U.S. and around the world, and introduces audiences to their new work. 



Through its signature labs, granting, and mentorship, the Institute provides and preserves the space for independent artists to explore their stories free from daily distraction, and to take risks free from commercial and political pressures. The Sundance Film Festival and other public programs connect audiences with artists, igniting new ideas, discovering original voices, and building a community dedicated to independent storytelling. 



Many of today’s most daring and iconic film, theatre, film music, episodic, and new media artists are counted among the more than 11,000 Institute alumni, with supported projects including Boyhood; Swiss Army Man; Manchester by the Sea; Brooklyn; Little Miss Sunshine; Life, Animated; Sonita; Twenty Feet from Stardom; Beasts of the Southern Wild; Fruitvale Station; Sin Nombre; Smoke Signals; Spring Awakening; A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder ; and Fun Home.
