Sundance Film Festival

For twenty-five years, UNLV FILM, with the support of the Brenden Foundation, has been proud to sponsor travel to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, one of the world’s premier events for independent filmmaking.

Sundance 2022!

This year, Sundance runs from January 20-30, 2022. There will be two groups of students, each attending five days of the festival.

The Brenden Foundation covers the cost of lodging, but students will be responsible for purchasing a round-trip plane ticket, a $750 festival pass, and food while on the trip.

Applicants interested in attending must submit proof of COVID vaccination, a narrative statement, samples of their work, and the name of a UNLV FILM mentor who has agreed to provide a reference.

All current undergraduates majoring or minoring in film (or alums who graduated in December 2020 or later) are eligible to apply, but preference will be given to juniors, seniors, and recent grads 21 years of age and older whose cumulative GPAs reflect high academic achievement.
