Sundance Film Festival 2023: An Experience of a Lifetime
Founded in 1978 by Robert Redford, the Sundance Film Festival was created as a platform for American filmmakers to showcase their work and promote independent cinema. Sundance is unique in that it is one of the few film festivals that is truly democratic. Any filmmaker can submit their work for consideration—Sundance does not discriminate based on factors like budget or star power. As a result, it has served as a launching pad for up-and-coming filmmakers in Hollywood—notably the Coen brothers, Steven Soderbergh, and Quentin Tarantino.
Since the 1980s, this festival has become a global platform that has launched hundreds of films to critical acclaim, including some of these breakout box office hits:
From daring documentaries to groundbreaking narrative features, Sundance showcases a wide range of new and cutting-edge movies in a variety of genres. Recently, Sundance announced a sneak peek of its restored and remastered “From the Collection” 2023 lineup, which includes:
