The 2019 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a 96-minute theatrical program of 7 short films selected from this year’s Festival, widely considered the premier showcase for short films and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers for more than 30 years. Including fiction, documentary and animation from around the world, the 2019 program offers new audiences a taste of what the Festival offers, from sharply-written comedy and drama to edgy genre and an intimate family saga.

The Sundance Film Festival has introduced global audiences to some of the most groundbreaking films of the past three decades, including Boyhood, Swiss Army Man, Manchester By the Sea, Brooklyn, Little
Miss Sunshine, Napoleon Dynamite, 20 Feet From Stardom, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Fruitvale Station, and Sin Nombre. Each year the Festival receives more than 9,000 short film submissions and
selects 70 to show. The Festival programs a collection of shorts from its most recent Festival for a theatrical tour of independent art houses in more than 70 cities throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe.
It is one of very few theatrical releases of short films in the United States.

Fueled by artistic expression and limited only by their running time, short films transcend traditional storytelling. They are a significant and popular way artists can connect with audiences. From documentary to
animation, narrative to experimental, the abbreviated form is made for risk-taking. The Festival has always treated short films with the highest regard and gives a home to both established and new
filmmakers with shorts for audiences to discover and celebrate.

The Festival’s Short Film Program has long been established as a place to discover talented directors, such as past alums Wes Anderson, Spike Jonze, Nicole Holofcener, Paul Thomas Anderson, David O.
Russell, Debra Granik, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Lake Bell, Jay and Mark Duplass, Alexander Payne, Todd Haynes, Lynne Ramsay, Andrea Arnold, and many others. Recent short film discoveries at the Festival include Golden Globe Award winner Jill Soloway (Afternoon Delight, Transparent) and Academy Award winner Damien Chazelle (Whiplash, La La Land).

The Festival is the centerpiece of the year-round public programs for the nonprofit Institute, which also hosts a number of residency labs and grants more than $3.5 million to independent artists each year.
