Philip Seymour Hoffman 1967-2014
Following the loss of a tremendous talent and friend, we remember the singular work of actor and director Philip Seymour Hoffman and his many contributions to Sundance Institute. Hoffman generously donated his time to the Sundance Institute Labs as an actor at the 2004 Directors Lab and a Creative Advisor at the 2005 Screenwriters and Directors Labs. In addition, he appeared in and/or directed seven films that played at the Sundance Film Festival, beginning in 1998 with Montana. Browse the photos below to revisit all of Hoffman’s Sundance-supported work, from his 2010 directorial debut Jack Goes Boating to his latest acting roles in God’s Pocket and A Most Wanted Man.
“Philip Seymour Hoffman was very supportive of the Sundance labs. For me, he had such a high respect for his craft and for the creative process more broadly. He dug so deep into his characters: he brought darkness to light."
— Robert Redford
