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.

Guests at An Artist at the Table will enjoy the world premiere of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival opening night film at the Eccles Theatre, followed by 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 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.
