President and Founder of Sundance Institute, Robert Redford, said: “The work of independent storytellers can challenge and possibly change culture, illuminating our world’s imperfections and possibilities. 

"This year’s Festival is full of artfully-told stories that provoke thought, drive empathy and allow the audience to connect, in deeply personal ways, to the universal human experience.”

The Sundance Film Festival will run from January 18-28 2018 in Park City, Salt Lake City and Sundance Mountain Resort.
