An Artist At The Table

Sundance Film Festival Opening Night Celebration


An Artist at the Table
Save the date for our 2019 event!
Thursday, January 24, 2019

This January, Sundance Institute is ecstatic to be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of our largest annual benefit event, An Artist at the Table. Each year, guests of An Artist at the Table attend an exclusive opening night film premiere followed by a seated dinner and energizing program. Most notably, guests are seated with a Sundance-supported artist right at their table to enjoy the night side by side. Join us for an evening where artists can share their perspectives as those most directly impacted by our year-round work—which is made possible only through the generosity of our community of supporters.

Highlights from the past 10 years of An Artist at the Table include:

  • Musical performances by film composers Gingger Shankar, Kim Carroll, Will Calhoun, Lili Haydn, and iZLER
  • Keynote speeches from Sundance-supported artists Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Mark Ruffalo, Cary Fukunaga, Nonny de la Peña, and Jeff Orlowski
  • Premiere screenings of The Queen of Versailles; May in the Summer; Whiplash; What Happened, Miss Simone?; Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You; An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power; and Blindspotting
  • Divine dinners prepared by Giada De Laurentiis and a host of other outstanding James Beard chefs
  • An exclusive theatrical performance from 2015 Theatre Lab project Fun Home performed by Emily Skeggs, Michael Cerveris, and Beth Malone
  • Performances highlighting Festival films, including the dance team featured in STEP and a surprise opening act by Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal, co-writers and co-stars of Blindspotting
  • Personal Sundance stories heard from Billy Luther, Ritesh Batra, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Cherry Jones, and Octavia Spencer given amongst guests right at their tables
