Sundance Institute revealed several key aspects of how their 2022 Sundance Film Festival will take place in person and online January 20-30, 2022, including sharing the Satellite Screen partners and locations.
“Our programming team, led by the fearless Kim Yutani, is deep into screening the mountain of submissions we have already received this year,” said Festival Director Tabitha Jackson, “As our press and industry offices open in preparation for the next edition of our festival we are excited to share what details we can today, anticipate sharing more as we know more, and can’t wait to meet audiences wherever they are, including in Utah, in January.”
Seven independent arthouse cinemas across the United States have been selected to showcase a specially-curated selection of Festival films and connect with local audiences during the Festival’s closing weekend, Friday, January 28, through Sunday, January 30, 2022. The selected Satellite Screen theaters are
- Amherst Cinema in Amherst, Massachusetts
- a/perture cinema in Winston-Salem, North Carolina
- Indie Memphis in Memphis, Tennessee
- mama.film in Lawrence, Kansas
- Media Arts Center of San Diego / Digital Gym in San Diego, California
- Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, Washington
- SNF Parkway Theatre, home of the Maryland Film Festival in Baltimore, Maryland
As announced in August, the Institute will require all participants attending the Festival — or Festival-sanctioned events — in person in Utah to be fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine that is approved by the World Health Organization. All vaccinations must be completed at least two weeks prior to traveling to the Festival.
The festival will also require that masks are worn at all times in interior spaces and in queuing lines (this includes outdoor areas such as tents, restrooms, and temporary structures).
