The Sundance Institute is making plans for how the Sundance Film Festival will be held in 2023. The festival will be back in Utah from January 19 to January 29.
Films will start to be shown online on January 24. All 2023 competition titles will be available online and on demand. There are films from the U.S. Dramatic,
U.S. Documentary, World Cinema Dramatic, World Cinema Documentary, and NEXT sections, as well as work from other sections of the feature programmes and short films.
On Jan. 28 and 29, the films that won awards in 2023 will be shown both in person and online.
Filmmakers of "President" talk about Zimbabwe's ban on the documentary and the long fight for democracy.
Zimbabwe's government keeps its ban on the political film "President," which won an award at Sundance. "The Swimmers," a Netflix drama about refugees, will open the Toronto Film Festival.
In 2021 and 2022, there was an all-virtual festival. In 2022, the festival had to be changed at the last minute because of a rise in COVID-19 cases caused by the Omicron variant.
Sundance also talked about how COVID-19 will keep the 2023 festival safe. Staff and volunteers at the festival will have to wear masks and take tests
every week. There is no requirement for people to wear masks or get vaccines. Instead, the festival asks people to wear masks and encourages
them to get tested before and during the festival and keep their vaccinations up to date.
