What’s It All About?

The Sundance Film Festival (SFF) takes place annually in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is one of the largest independent film festivals in the US. The festival will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2014, and is known to have introduced global audiences to some of the most groundbreaking films of the past three decades.

The festival is a programme of the non-profit Sundance Institute which since 1981, has evolved to become an internationally-recognised non-profit organisation that actively advances the work of risk-taking storytellers worldwide. Founded by Robert Redford in the mountains of Sundance, Utah, the Sundance Institute has always provided a space for independent artistes to explore their stories free from commercial and political pressures.

By providing year-round creative and financial support for the development of original stories for the screen and stage, the Sundance Institute remains committed to its mission to discover and develop independent artistes and audiences across the globe.

It comprises competitive sections for American and international dramatic and documentary films, both feature-length films and short films, and a group of non-competitive showcase sections. This year, the 2014 Short Film programme will have 66 short films selected from a record 8,161 submissions.
