Welcome Sundance Institute Alumni! We’re so pleased you could join us here at our newest and greatest tool for communicating directly with alumni. One thing we hear again and again from Filmmakers and Fellows is that Sundance is more than a Festival, or a Lab, or a Grant. It’s a community, a family. We know it sounds a little cheesey, but we really believe it.

I especially believe it in my new role as Senior Manager, Alumni Relations for Sundance Institute. The newly formalized Sundance Institute Alumni Program has two main goals 1) to keep track of alumni that come through the Festival, Labs or Grant Process; and 2) to use our resources to help those alumni in any way that we can — whether it’s getting a project off the ground, making connections with distributors or promoting a film that’s heading out into the world. And that’s the tie into #ArtistServices. Our Artist Services team has accumulated the best resources in indie film and put them online for you to access exclusively.

What’s next? Even though Sundance is ramping up online services through the new Artist Services site, we’re also making more plans to see you in person – we now have six planned Sundance Alumni events a year – two in NY, two in LA, one at the Sundance Resort in Utah during the Producers Summit, and one in Austin during SXSW. And we’ll be looking for more ways to connect with you in person throughout the year. Stay tuned.

We’ll also be formalizing alumni relations onsite at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Look for a new Alumni Desk located in the Film Office at Headquarters to get information, and to pick up tickets or credentials. We will be selling a Festival ticket package just for Sundance alumni, and making alumni credentials available to you pre-Festival. We are also continuing our year-round online communications with the quarterly Alumni E-newsletter – every Summer, Spring, Fall and Winter you’ll continue to get an update from us on everything alumni. And that’s just for starters.

Let us know what you’re up to, and how we can help. We love to hear from you. Email us at alumni@sundance.org

P.S. You can always follow me at @Scoopsmcgee on Twitter if you want hear how the Sundance Meerkats softball team is doing. If you’re in LA, come to a game! We play on Thursday nights.

Sundance Institute Piloting Direct Individual Support for Mediamakers Through the Sundance Institute | Humanities Sustainability Fellowship

Long before the COVID-19 pandemic upended life in general, and halted production and distribution for many creatives, the nonfiction field was plagued by issues of sustainability. For several years, sustainability has been an urgent and vigorous topic of study, debate, and organizing, as more and more filmmakers find it difficult, if not impossible, to make a living solely on the basis of their creative work. 

In Memoriam: Diane Weyermann (1955–2021)

A singular force within the documentary film world with a global reach, Diane Weyermann passed away at age 66 after battling cancer. Over the course of her 30-year career as a funder and an executive, her work elevated the documentary form and expanded its cultural impact.
