The Sundance Institute is a global nonprofit arts organization established by Robert Redford. Since its founding in 1981, the Institute has provided a nurturing oasis for independent artists to confidently develop their inimitable voices, and speak their truth without compromise—free from commercial pressure. We stand in solidarity with risk-taking creators and the audiences who support them.
We mentor and support a vibrant international community of independent artists across 184 countries, championing the discovery and development of storytellers whose important stories might otherwise go unnoticed.
The Sundance Institute provides a continuum of support available to all artists and audiences who want to make art, discover stories, and enjoy community. The resources and services we offer are unified by our name, reputation and standards of excellence. We are a laboratory for imagination at the intersection of art and technology. We host events and programs, delivering always-on ways to push the creative boundaries of film, stage, documentary, and episodic storytelling.
The Abaton Calendar is a resource created for and by voice talent, to help create meaningful connections and forge and maintain professional and personal relationships. (And hopefully, have a hell of a lot of fun in the process).
