Sundance Institute has announced four of the five films that will be featured at eight free outdoor film screenings for the 2013 Sundance Institute Summer Series . The Utah community is invited to vote online from July 1 to Aug. 15 for the fifth film, which will be announced and screened in late August.
Now in its 16th year, the series kicks off on July 31 at Salt Lake City’s Red Butte Garden and Aug. 2 and on Main Street and at Canyons Resort in Park City. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees are encouraged to bring picnic baskets and blankets to sit on.
All films have screened at the Sundance Film Festival or participated in the Institute’s artist-development programs such as the Directors Lab, the Documentary Editing and Storytelling Lab and the Film Composers Lab.
"This year’s Summer Series pays tribute to the films the local community responded to at our Festivals, and we’re excited to invite the community to share in the programming," said Sarah Pearce, co-managing director of the Sundance Institute. "We look forward to enjoying these films with our neighbors and friends in Utah during the gorgeous summer months."
Sundance Institute is once again joining forces with other Utah-based organizations for the Summer Series. This year’s collaborators include Canyons Resort, Kimball Arts Festival, Park City Performing Arts Foundation and Red Butte Garden.
