2017 Sundance Film Festival
Welcome to another year where I will be viewing all the excitement of the Sundance Film Festival from afar. What happens in Park City between Jan. 19 and 29 is sure to define the sensational in independent film for the immediate future. It’s been awhile since I attended, but I’m confident it’s still a whirlwind of snow, screenings, parties, great meals, skiing, and distribution deals. Now, thanks to Twitter, the Festival news stream is at our fingertips.
. Word from the @SundanceFest team is, the official hashtag is still #Sundance (but #Sundance2017 is worth a look, too).

. Now in its second decade of breaking new ground at the forefront of art and technology, Sundance Institute has curated an in-depth vision of storytelling’s future for the 2017 edition of New Frontier at this year’s Festival. The full slate includes storyworlds in Augmented Reality headsets, projection-mapped acrobatics, a VR beauty salon producing neuroscience data via the internet of things and a host of socialized, interactive and immersively haptic VR story experiences.

Finally, other than letting you know that all the Festival’s social media channels are also clearly listed in Nate’s story, I’ll mention [email protected]. Essentially, it means we all can tune-in daily for live content from the Festival, with access to the intimate conversations at Cinema Café, two heavy-hitting Power of Story panels, and myriad other official events. These events will be streamed at http://Sundance.org/festival and http://youtube.com/sff.
