Our next Club Cinema guest, Edson Oda, directed "Nine Days," in U.S. theaters July 30.

It’s here — your chance to get up close and personal with some of the visionary storytellers behind your favorite Sundance Film Festival releases!

Earlier this month, we launched the first edition of Club Cinema, our Clubhouse conversation series with our friends at TheFutureParty, a daily newsletter that brings you the most meaningful business and culture news. Join us every week (usually at 10 a.m. PT on Thursdays!) to hear a live chat with a special guest, delving into everything from their artistic influences to their latest works — and maybe even a question or two about their carnivorous plants.

We kicked things off on June 3 with writer-director Prano Bailey-Pond and screenwriter Anthony Fletcher, the duo behind the 2021 Sundance Film Festival opening-night selection Censor. And on June 17, we talked to writer-director Heidi Ewing and the cast behind I Carry You With Me, Ewing's debut narrative feature that was recently released in U.S. theaters.

Keep an eye on this space to see who will be swinging by for our next episode. Including…


On Thursday, July 22, at 10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, we’ll be joined by the team behind Nine Days. The project, written and directed by Edson Oda, had its world premiere at 2021 Sundance Film Festival, where it won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award: U.S. Dramatic. See it when it comes to U.S. theaters July 30. Oda will join us, along with producer Jason Michael Berman, actor Tony Hale, actor Arianna Ortiz, and actor David Rysdahl. Here's your direct link to the conversation!

About the Film: In a house distant from the reality we know, a reclusive man interviews prospective candidates—personifications of human souls—for the privilege that he once had: to be born.


Who: The Future Party’s Paul Yurick; the Sundance Institute’s Abi Brizuela, Nathan Levinson, and Virginia Yapp; and a different guest every week (expect surprises)

When: Every week

Where: On the Clubhouse app on your smartphone. Here's your direct link to the event! Download the app on your smartphone in Apple’s App Store or in Google Play.

How: Follow the Sundance Institute and the Future Party once you set up your account. From there, you can see upcoming events and set alerts so you don’t miss them.

If a moderator invites you up to ask your question, please keep it short and to the point. As always, our Community Agreement principles stand.
