Now that you’ve seen the films, please pour yourself a drink and join Sundance ticket holders from Satellite Screens across the country on Zoom to discuss! Which was your favorite film? Who gave the best performance? What did you learn? We want to hear all your thoughts. Hosted by Indie Memphis and programmers from Amherst Cinema (Amherst, MA), a/perture cinema (Winston-Salem,NC), mama.film (Lawrence, KS), Media Arts Center of San Diego/Digital Gym (San Diego, CA), Northwest Film Forum (Seattle, WA) and SNF Parkway Theatre (Baltimore, Maryland).
Sundance Film Festival requires all participants to be fully vaccinated to participate in the Festival in-person and to wear masks when inside any venues. Each Satellite Screen theater partner will be following these protocols as well as their own additional COVID-19 health policies.
Full COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement
All participants must be fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine that is approved by the World Health Organization. All vaccinations must be completed at least two weeks prior to attending the Festival. The CDC notes that being vaccinated greatly reduces your likelihood of contracting or transmitting the COVID-19 virus. Vaccination maintains your own health and safety, and reduces transmission rates within spaces and at events. We will share information on how to provide proof of vaccination closer to the Festival.
We require that masks are worn at all times in interior spaces and in queuing lines. This is an important safety measure that not only benefits you but those around you.
