Keri Putnam, Executive Director
Welcome to the new sundance.org!
We’ve refined and streamlined our design to allow you to more easily connect with the work, ideas, opportunities, and events at Sundance Institute year-round. We hope you will explore, see what we’re up to, and get involved – whether as an artist applying for a Lab or grant, a supporter looking to engage with the Institute, a film lover attending the Sundance Film Festival, or a culture hound looking to connect with great work and a vibrant community.
The site you see today is an exciting step for us, and some of the most innovative features are still to come. Built with the incomparable team at Pivotal Labs, and managed by our own talented Jess Kantor, the site represents a full reworking of our digital infrastructure. This new foundation allows us to embrace an iterative approach to our digital presence so that we can more nimbly respond to the needs of the creative community we’re so proud to serve.
Robert Redford founded Sundance Institute in 1981 to create a home where original stories would be fostered, shared, and celebrated. In keeping with the mission and founding impulse for the Institute, we want our website to be a place for our community to connect with one another. In the weeks and months to come, we’ll offer more resources, inspiration, and ways for you to add your voice.
