2019 festival atmosphere dan campbell 1439

Our festival:
The Sundance Film Festival takes place each year in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah. The festival brings the most original storytellers together with the most adventurous audiences for its annual programme of dramatic and documentary films, installations, performances, panel discussions, and music events. Since 1985, hundreds of films launched at the festival have gained critical recognition, received commercial distribution, and reached audiences worldwide.

Our shorts and programming:
The short film program is assembled by a team of ten programmers who watch every single one of the more than 8,000 short film submissions that come in each year. During our 2019 edition there were five short film programs, as well as short programs in sections for documentary, animation, and midnight films, and a handful of short films that played before features. All short films are considered for jury awards.

Our selection:
The selection presented here has been curated for The Norwegian Short Film Festival by Sundance shorts programmer Landon Zakheim. It offers a sampling of the 2019 short film catalogue, including thought-provoking documentaries, powerful and boundary-pushing narratives.

Programmer Landon Zakheim will introduce this screening.

Our next edition: January 23rd to February 2nd, 2020
