Sundance 2024 Beyond Film Program

Exciting news! Our Beyond Film Program and Partner Events have just launched today, ahead of schedule. I thought you'd like to know so you can explore them, mark any that catch your eye, and share the details with students as you map out your Festival plans. You can find details here but I just wanted to point out some key things--- and one online event next Friday!

Rounding out the Festival experience, Beyond Film provides a community hub for Festivalgoers through artist conversations, filmmaker panels, and audience discourse. Events will be held in person from January 18–26, recordings will be available online beginning January 25.

  • We would love to see your students at “The Big Conversation: First Steps, First Films” panel on Jan 24, 2 PM. More panelists will be announced.
  • Most Beyond Film events are free and several will take place at the Filmmaker Lodge; however, we recommend confirming the time and location of your event in the Festival Program Guide. Note: Power of Story will be a paid, ticketed event and will require a digital ticket for entry.
  • For admission to Cinema Cafe, Big Conversation, New Frontier, and 40th Edition Celebration events, arrive at least 30 minutes early, as seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. 
  • Upon arrival, present your Festival ID QR code on your mobile device for entry. You can access your Festival ID by logging in to your free Festival account and going to “My Schedule.” 

Our Partner events have a lot to offer emerging filmmakers and I'm sure they would love to see your students there. These events are typically hosted at a particular sponsor venue. Here are examples but there are many more (and more will be added!).

  1. Online, NEXT FRIDAY will be “Getting into Sundance: A Conversation with Eugene Hernandez”. Registration required.
  2. Music & Film: The Creative Process on Jan 22
  3. Satellite Sessions: First-Time Filmmakers at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan 19
  4. Film Promotion Strategies with Adobe Express on Jan 22
