How do I submit a film to Sundance?

Sundance Film Festival FAQ

The Sundance Institute normally puts out the call for entries for the next festival in June each year. Submissions are open until the end of October, and a discounted entry fee is on offer to try and encourage early submissions.

These days, all submissions are managed online via the official Sundance Film Festival web site. The first step is to complete the online submission form, then send a copy of your film to the address provided.

The festival receives over 12,500 submissions for around 275 berths, so the chances of selection are quite slim.
