Sundance Institute is a non-profit organization that actively advances the work of risk-taking storytellers. Founded in 1981 by Robert Redford in the mountains of Sundance, Utah, the Institute secures a space for independent artists to explore their stories free from commercial and political pressures. Through year-round programs, the Institute seeks to discover and develop independent artists and audiences and to provide a platform for artists to present their works to a global audience—the Sundance Film Festival.
