Sundance Sets Dates For 2025 Festival

The Sundance Film Festival’s next edition will run from Jan. 23 to Feb. 2 in Park City and Salt Lake City, Utah, the nonprofit Sundance Institute announced today.

“While the next Sundance Film Festival is still 10 months away, we’re already laying the foundation for the 2025 edition, looking ahead to sharing a new group of artists’ work with audiences at the start of next year,” said Eugene Hernandez, Director of the Festival and of the Sundance Institute’s Public Programming.  

“My first Festival as Director was filled with so many moving, inspiring stories of discovery with emerging and established artists from around the world connecting with festivalgoers. Today I invite you to circle our upcoming 2025 dates on your calendar, January 23 to February 2.

Hernandez, a co-founder of Indiewire joined Sundance in 2022 after years directing the New York Film Festival. This year was his first at the helm.

“And that photo isn’t photoshopped!” he added (see pic above). “At the end of the 2024 Festival, I really climbed atop the marquee of Park City’s historic Egyptian Theater to change the dates in anticipation of 2025! Stay tuned for more and filmmakers look out for our call for submissions later this spring. See you there!”

In an interview with Deadline at the close of the 2024 fest, Hernandez said the digital footprint was narrower and there were fewer features as the fest focused on “first impressions” and “giving each of our invited films and filmmakers the celebratory, unforgettable introduction they deserve.” With the entertainment landscape in constant flux it’s never easy to predict deals, but there were many this year, some quiet sizable. Indie distributors, studios and streamers were all active, jumping on a eclectic group of features and docs, from Jesse Eisenberg’s My Old AssSuper/Man: The Christopher Reeve Story, Presence, Between The Temples, Good One, Will & Harper and more,

Further details about Sundance 2025 will be shared over the coming months. The film festival is an artist program of the nonprofit Sundance Institute, which with emerging artists year-round basis through focused labs, direct grants, fellowships and residencies. The festival program consists of fiction and nonfiction features and short films, series and episodic content as well as talks and panels.
