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.
August 3, 2022: Update from the Community Team
After a summer full of free screenings and events, we wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude to you for coming to our summer programming. Your support and attendance means the world to us, and we will be back next year summer with more events that share independent film with you.
Watch this page monthly for updates on events we will be hosting, artist programming, and events being planned by our local community partners.
