An Artist At The Table

Sundance Film Festival Opening Night Celebration


For the past decade, Sundance Institute’s signature benefit has connected fierce independent artists and brave audiences who together embrace original, audacious, and deeply personal stories. Join us on Thursday, January 24th as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of An Artist at the Table and champion the next generation of groundbreaking voices.

An Artist at the Table kicks off your 2019 Sundance Film Festival with premium seating at Eccles Theatre for the world premiere of Bart Freundlich's After the Wedding, a mesmerizing family drama starring Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams, and Billy Crudup.

Following the film screening, enjoy an unforgettable evening that includes dinner at Park City’s Utah Film Studios in the company of a Sundance-supported artist . Stay tuned for more details about this special evening as we continue to announce the line-up of visionary artists who will share their personal Sundance experiences and the risks they’ve taken to tell their authentic stories.

Last year, An Artist at the Table raised over $650,000 for emerging artists that funded grants, mentorships, and other critical resources to help bring their stories to life. This year we’re aiming to well surpass that goal!

Reserve your table or seat today to celebrate independent storytellers and support the year-round work of the nonprofit Sundance Institute.

Due to the popularity of the event, tickets are limited. We are grateful to all of our current participants and excited for your interest as well!

If you’re interested in joining us for An Artist At The Table, please call (435) 575 - 8079 or email artistatthetable@sundance.org for more information.
