Sundance

Story by Vanderbilt Hustler February 5th, 2018

The Sundance Film Festival takes place every January in Park City, Utah. Started in the late seventies, and eventually adopting name of Sundance after chairman Robert Redford’s most famous character, the festival highlights the best of American and international independent filmmakers. Sundance also functions as a marketplace for distributors to purchase the projects.

Here in Nashville, distributors showcase Sundance works throughout the year at small theaters such as the Belcourt and even on Netflix. Other times, smash hits such as Reservoir Dogs and Get Out receive wide releases. Beyond the screenings, people enjoy the Sundance Film Festival for the parties, skiing, and community of fellow film lovers.
