Sundance Film Festival
For two weeks every year, Salt Lake buzzes with creativity and celebration, but this year we will have to revel in the energy and magic of Sundance in a virtual way.
The crew at Sundance made the difficult decision on Wednesday, Jan 5, to move the hybrid festival to a fully virtual experience. "We have been looking forward to our first fully hybrid Sundance Film Festival and our teams have spent a year planning a festival like no other. But despite the most ambitious protocols, the Omicron variant with its unexpectedly high transmissibility rates is pushing the limits of health safety, travel and other infrastructures across the country. ... While we’re disappointed to not provide the full hybrid experience and gather in-person as intended, audiences this year will still experience the magic and energy of our Festival with bold new films and XR work, the discovery of new storytellers, direct encounters with artists, and an innovative globally accessible social platform and gallery space."
