2023 Sundance Film Festival to Take Place January 19-29, 2023

Submissions Now Open via FilmFreeway

PARK CITY, UTAH —The nonprofit Sundance Institute is pleased to announce the 2023 Sundance Film Festival will take place as a hybrid festival in Park City, Salt Lake City, Utah, and beyond, from January 19 through January 29, 2023.

“We can’t wait to return to our home in Park City and present exciting new work from around the world live and in person,” said Festival Director Tabitha Jackson. “We also have two years of digital exhibition and participation under our collective belt, and are returning to the excitement and immediacy of live events while retaining a powerful online offering.”

The program, including world-premiere feature films, short films, episodic work and a full New Frontier program, will be larger than those presented digitally in the prior two years. Pass and package information for both online and in-person participation will be shared closer to the Festival, as will detailed health safety and vaccination guidance. 

The past two Festivals saw audiences coming together online to experience new independent storytelling as it premiered on the Festival’s proprietary digital platform, including such award-winning and -nominated films from the 2021 edition as CODA, Summer of Soul (…or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised), Mass, Flee, and Passing, among others, and reached larger audiences and was more accessible than past in-person Festivals.

Programmers, led by Director of Programming Kim Yutani, are standing by to screen submissions, gathered via FilmFreeway. Feature film submissions close August 12 (early), September 5 (official) and September 26 (late), 2022.
