This year, the Sundance Film Festival, a program of the Sundance Institute, is moving its 43rd edition online! Canada will take over your screens, with four feature-length films, one short film, and a virtual reality project making their world premiere at the prestigious festival.

Discover emerging filmmakers and low-budget independent films at the 28th Slamdance Film Festival, held online from January 27th to February 6th 2022! Since its founding in 1995, Slamdance’s competition films have all been feature-length directorial debuts, produced with budgets of less than $1 million USD. Three Canadian features, one web series, and two shorts have been selected for this year’s edition!
