Presented online 20-30 January, the 2022 Sundance Film Festival includes an impressive roster of feature films, short films, indie episodic programming, “Beyond Film” performances and a virtual and augmented reality division—all of which is accessible through festival.sundance.org. For those who have come to love the festival or dreamed of attending (for the spirit on the streets of Park City, Utah and the swirl of social activities that bring filmmakers and cinema fans together) the festival has brought all of their pop-ups to the internet through their Festival Village site, which includes a Main Street and Community Hub landing page. These destinations—each of which has its own specific access requirements—allow those interested to attend insightful LA Times talks presented by Chase Sapphire, join watch parties or an Outfest Queer Brunch (now in its 26th year) from Acura, view presentations from The Blackhouse Foundation, craft an official Sundance cocktail from Rabbit Hole, pop into musical performances at the ASCAP Music Café, listen to the conversations at the Latinx House and more. Head over to Festival Village to register and explore it all, and to learn how to participate in each.
