2020 Sundance Film Festival: Juries Announced

 Sundance Institute will gather 25 celebrated and revered expert voices across film, art, culture, and science to award feature-length and short films shown at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival with 31 prizes, announced at a ceremony on February 1. Short Film Awards will be announced at a separate ceremony on January 28. The Festival takes place from January 23 through February 2 in Park City, Salt Lake City, and Sundance, Utah.
