We’re taking you back to our roots. Our new Sundance Institute Archives Tumblr blog offers a glance back at Quentin Tarantino as a burgeoning young director, a pre-stardom Mark Wahlberg at the 1995 Festival, and much more. It’s American Archives Month, and we invite you to explore the history of Sundance Institute through our collection of photographs and images.

Our Archives is brimming with materials documenting our Artist Programs and the Sundance Film Festival including, but not limited to photos, films stills, posters, videos, scripts, and press kits. Why Tumblr? Well, Tumblr is not only one of the fastest growing blogging platforms (13 billion page views a month), but it’s also one of the best sources of curated content on fashion, photography, art, and design. Through its own set of user tools including “reblogging” and “like,” the more then 28 million blogs on the platform comprise some of the most interesting pieces of creative content on the web. One type of content thriving in this easy post and simple consume ecosystem is photographs, which we have plenty to share.
So check Tumblr regularly (or if you’re already a Tumblr user you can easily follow us) to catch a glimpse into the Sundance Institute Archives.
