Art is one of the best social connectors. Everywhere you look people are banded together by the art that ignites passion, conversation, and action. Think about the palpable energy that radiates through a movie theater as the lights go down and everyone experiences a new film together. It gives us chills!
Every year, through the Film Festival, labs, fellowships and more, our community of artists and independent film lovers grows. With 40+ years under our belt, we’ve started to connect the dots of some of our past films and filmmakers. Welcome to Smash Cut.
For this inaugural edition of Smash Cut, we’ve realized that the Sundance Film Festival has way more in common with the Coachella Valley Music and Arts festival than you might initially think! Join us as we go from main stage headliners to indie cult classics in six easy steps. While sunscreen isn’t necessary for this cinematic journey, it’s always a good idea!
