The Sundance Film Festival has announced further details of how it expects its 2022 hybrid edition in January to unfold. In addition to its online and Utah screenings, there will also be a number of satellite screenings at arthouse cinemas in cities across the US.

Festival Director Tabitha Jackson said: “Our programming team, led by the fearless Kim Yutani, is deep into screening the mountain of submissions we have already received this year. As our press and industry offices open in preparation for the next edition of our festival we are excited to share what details we can today, anticipate sharing more as we know more, and can’t wait to meet audiences wherever they are, including in Utah, in January.”

Launching the festival screening platform along with ticket details, the festival noted that all those attending in person must be fully vaccinated with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organisation, with mask and safety protocols in place.

The cinemas that will offer satellite screenings from January 28-30 are: Amherst Cinema in Amherst, Massachusetts; a/perture cinema in Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Indie Mephis in Memphis, Tennessee; in Lawrence, Kansas; Media Arts Center of San Diego/Digital Gym in San Diego, California; Northwest Film Forum in Seattle, Washington; and SNF Parkway Theater, home of the Maryland Film festival, in Baltimore, Maryland.

Sundance 2022 will run from January 20-30.
