The second presentation in this annual collaboration with the Sundance Institute highlights the art and craft of the short film format. The four programs reflect the innovation and energy showcased in the fertile field of shorts—ranging from narrative to documentary to animation, and with running times from under one minute to just over 30, some of the most creative and challenging works from around the world are found in this format. Because shorts are how many feature filmmakers of the next generation traditionally cut their teeth, the Sundance Film Festival programmers are ever on the lookout for the next big discovery. Several filmmakers will present and discuss their work. The first night’s program will be introduced by Sundance founder Robert Redford.
Co-organized by John Cooper, Director of Programming, and Trevor Groth, Senior Programmer, Sundance Film Festival; and Jytte Jensen, Curator, Department of Film and Media, The Museum of Modern Art.
