An Artist At The Table Celebration

Save the date for our 2018 event!
Thursday, January 18, 2018



Each January, we kick off the Sundance Film Festival with our largest benefit event of the year, at which our guests attend the Festival’s exclusive opening night film premiere followed by a seated dinner and program—where they get to know a Sundance-supported filmmaker right at their table. Join us to experience our year-round work through the perspectives of those who are directly impacted by the support of patrons like you.


Highlights from the 2017 An Artist at the Table event include:

  • The world premiere of former Vice President Al Gore’s documentary An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power to a packed house at the Eccles Theatre.
  • A reception at the DeJoria Center with a multi-course dinner prepared by preeminent chefs, including Richard Blais, in partnership with the James Beard Celebrity Chef Tour.
  • A keynote address by alum and Emmy Award winner Jeff Orlowski, who debuted his newest environmental project, Chasing Coral, two days later at the Festival.
  • Remarks from a Redford family member, Amy Redford, who spoke about how the Institute came to be and how it remains a safe space for artists to test their creative boundaries.
  • A surprise appearance by the Lethal Ladies, who were featured in the 2017 Festival film STEP.
  • A closing performance by special musical guest Kenny Loggins, who had the crowd on their feet dancing to his soundtrack hits.


Details about next year’s event will be shared later this year. For more information, please contact We hope you’ll join us for next year’s festivities! Until then, relive highlights from 2017 in our photo gallery.
