Sundance Park City

The Sundance Institute has been awarded a $1 million, three-year grant from the Annenberg Foundation, which will provide support for the Institute's year-round creative and tactical programs for independent film artists. The Annenberg's past support of the Institute, the Film Fellows Program from 2004-2011, helped support projects such as Sean Durkin's "Martha Marcy May Marlene," Dee Rees' "Pariah" and Benh Zeitlin's "Beasts of the Southern Wild."

This year's grant will continue the funding of Sundance's labs, grants, the #ArtistsServices initiative and, of course, the Sundance Film Festival.
