Artist Circle




Sundance Institute’s Artist Circle is a global community of supporters who champion independent storytelling and engage directly with the artists whose work they make possible.

Artist Circle offers a unique opportunity to engage with the work and programs of Sundance Institute that you are most passionate about. As you enable us to fund mentorships, residential labs, and public programming for artists at the forefront of storytelling in film, theatre, and emerging media, you will connect with those artists as well as with Institute and industry leaders throughout the year. We invite you to join us as true stakeholders in our mission to empower the independent voices that ignite new ideas and transform our culture.


Members of Artist Circle are invited to engage directly with the work of the Institute, joining our thought leaders and decision makers as they imagine the future of media and storytelling. Donors who participate at the highest levels will have a unique opportunity to deepen their impact in a particular area by joining one of our leadership councils or affinity programs (year one opportunities include Women at Sundance, Catalyst, Inclusion and Outreach programs, and our International Program).
