The Sundance Film Festival is the largest and most well-known independent film festival based in the United States, and has been based in Utah for more than 40 years. Over the years, the best talent and creative minds in the filmmaking world have taken part in the Festival in one way or another, and literally tens of thousands of people attend the Festival and come to the screenings each year.
Traditionally held in January, the 2021 Sundance Film Festival is going forward, but with a major change - this year it will be held almost entirely as a virtual event.
To keep people safe during the ongoing global pandemic, for the first time ever you can view worldwide premieres, see talks from filmmakers, and participate live in other Sundance events from the comfort of your living room, during the Festival dates of January 28 to February 3, 2021.
Passes and tickets are available in a variety of options and prices, ranging from tickets for a single film, to day passes, to full festival passes, and other options in between. Be aware that the films are only available in the U.S., and tickets are limited - so plan early.
Also available is the Festival Village - the virtual place to go to participate in free events, talks, and sponsored experiences, and these features are available globally. Lastly, some films will be screened live in independent art theaters and pop-ups throughout the U.S., with an emphasis placed on doing so in a safe and responsible manner.
We'll miss having the Festival live in Utah for 2021, but we're excited to see what Sundance has to offer this year!
