Industry members, including financiers, distributors, producers, executives, funders, and festival programmers from around the world, will receive an invitation to Talent Forum in Fall 2019.
Sundance Institute Talent Forum connects industry professionals with a diverse and bold array of artists and projects from across the Institute’s renowned lab programs and Festival. Taking place over three days during the Sundance Film Festival, Talent Forum meaningfully advances the projects and careers of curated artists in fiction and nonfiction by offering a focused community, bespoke connections, and unique access to all parts of the Festival. The next edition will take place from Tuesday, January 28, through Thursday, January 30, at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
Last year, Talent Forum brought together artists and projects from over 40 countries to meet with financiers, distributors, producers, executives, funders, and festival programmers from around the world. Those presenting new work included filmmakers with such notable credits as Beasts of the Southern Wild, Strong Island, Spa Night, and Life, Animated, as well as artists embarking on their first features. Talent Forum panels spotlighted renowned artists including Ryan Coogler (Black Panther), Alma Har'el (Honey Boy), and Jeff Orlowski (Chasing Ice).
