The Sundance Institute announces its third year of Film Forward: Advancing Cultural Dialogue, in partnership with the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The international touring program offers film screenings, workshops and discussions with filmmakers in eight locations in collaboration with local institutions and US Embassies. Film Forward's aim is to foster dialogue, inspire curiosity and advance cultural understanding and awareness.

The films participating in the third year are Behn Zeitlin's "Beasts of the Southern Wild," Stacy Peralta's "Bones Brigade: An Autobiography," Jeff Orlowski's "Chasing Ice," Patricia Riggen's "Under The Same Moon," Julia Meltzer and Laura Nix's "The Light in her Eyes," Nancy Buirski's "The Loving Story," Jerry Rothwell's "Town of Runners" and Musa Syeed's "Valley of Saints."

Sundance Institute's Keri Putnam says: “The first two years of Film Forward connected films and filmmakers with audiences they might have never reached resulting in some remarkable and rich events; we look forward to building on these shared experiences in the third year."

This year's eight locations are: Imperial Valley, California; Mexicali, Mexico; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Maine; Washington State; Bosnia, Herzegovina; China; Taiwan; Colombia; and Jordan.
