Sundance unveils new inclusion policy

Posted Monday 03 Dec 2018

You'll be pleased to see that the Sundance Film Festival (24 Jan 2019 - 3 Feb 2019) is ramping up its inclusion and transparency efforts. New hires on its programming team and new initiatives will deepen support for independent storytellers and broaden access to the Festival. The 2019 Festival will showcase work drawn from over 14,200 submissions, a record high. Sundance aims to welcome a more inclusive critics pool by allocating at least 20% of top-tier press passes to underrepresented writers, including women, people of colour, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, and people with disabilities.
