PARK CITY, Utah — The Sundance Institute announced the lineup for the three-part “Beyond Film” conversations series today, which it said “rounds out the Festival experience.”
The series parts entitled Power of Story, Cinema Café, and The Big Conversation, Beyond Film, provide a place for the community to engage through artist conversations, filmmaker panels, and audience discourse.
Series speakers include Barry Jenkins (Producer, All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt), Dakota Johnson (Actress, Producer), Jonathan Majors (Magazine Dreams), Randall Park (Shortcomings), Ruth Reichl (Food and Country), and Adrian Tomine (Shortcomings), as well as compelling speakers including Dr. Orna Guralnik (clinical psychologist, psychoanalyst, Couples Therapy), Marlee Matlin (actor, CODA), and Lisa Taddeo (author, Ghost Lover).
“We gather in Utah and online during the Festival to watch stories unfold. From feature films to shorts to Indie Episodic projects, Sundance is known for what audiences can see, but just as crucial to the experience is what we all talk about,” Ania Trzebiatowska, Beyond Film Program Curator, said in a press release. “The Beyond Film offerings encourage community. These talks allow Festivalgoers the opportunity to engage in a deeper way with the cultural ideas that they’ve seen on screen with artists, activists, and thinkers that are also exploring them.”
Beyond Film will take place in person from January 19–23, 2023, and will be available nationwide on the online Festival Platform starting January 24, 2023.
To gain admission to a Big Conversation or Cinema Café event, Festivalgoers will need to present their Festival badge or Festival ID (digital QR code) at the door. Power of Story will require a digital ticket for entry. Beyond Film events are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Find more information on Beyond Film here.
