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.
The awards, which recognize standout artistic and story elements, are voted on by each of 6 section juries, including, in the case of the NEXT Innovator’s Award, a jury of one. As in years past, Festival audiences have a role in deciding the 2020 Audience Awards, which will recognize 66 films in the U.S. Competition, World Competition and NEXT categories; audiences will also vote on a Festival Favorite film across categories, which will be announced the week following the Festival.
