Utah Community Programming
As a mission-driven nonprofit arts organization that’s rooted in Utah, Sundance Institute hosts local events and programs year-round that aim to:
- make the Sundance Film Festival accessible to Utah residents.
- introduce Utah audiences to independent film and immersive media.
- explore social issues and stories from around the globe.
- unite audiences and cultures through the power of storytelling.
- share the filmmaker’s journey with audiences and emerging filmmakers, including students.
