Sundance Film Festival Opening Night Celebration
Come celebrate the Sundance Film Festival’s bold spirit of independent storytelling, meet some of the amazing artists working with us, and become a part of our extended family all while benefitting the programs of our nonprofit Sundance Institute.
On Thursday, January 18th, 2018, guests at An Artist at the Table will attend the world premiere of the Festival’s opening night film, Blindspotting. Directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada the film was co-written by and co-stars Tony Award winner Daveed Diggs (from the original cast of the Broadway musical Hamilton) and Rafael Casal.
Following this incredible screening , guests will enjoy cocktails, dinner, and a reception with a talented Sundance artist joining them at their table. Hybrid performance ensemble String Theory—known for their genre-bending, immersive performances at events like the Emmy and Grammy Awards—will provide unique entertainment throughout the evening.
At last year’s event, we raised over $600,000 for emerging artists—which funded grants, mentorships, and other critical resources to help them bring their stories to life. This year, we’re aiming to surpass that goal to provide even deeper support for independent storytellers.
An Artist at the Table sells out early every year. Reserve your table or seat today to ensure you don’t miss out on this unique opportunity!
We are thrilled to announce our first confirmed artists in attendance with many more to come!
