About Us

Welcome to Sundance Collab, Sundance Institute’s digital space to learn from experts and build a global filmmaking community.

For over 40 years, the Sundance Institute has supported and championed independent artists, because we believe their stories and perspectives are essential to a thriving, informed and connected society. As a program of the Sundance Institute, Sundance Collab provides an unparalleled, open, inclusive digital destination and experience where independent global creators have a safe space to learn and grow as artists, share their stories, and connect to one another.

  • Courses in producing, directing, screenwriting, documentary filmmaking and career & business
  • Online events and Master Classes
  • A plethora of resources and opportunities to connect with the community thanks to membership
