The Sundance Film Festival, established in 1985, is the largest and longest-running independent film festival in the United States. Organized by the Sundance Institute, it takes place annually in Park City, Utah, Salt Lake City, and at the Sundance Resort. The Festival is renowned for introducing groundbreaking work and emerging talent in independent film, serving as a platform for films that have become icons of the indie canon, such as American Psycho, Love & Basketball, Call Me by Your Name, and CODA.

The Festival consists of competitive sections for American and international dramatic and documentary films, both feature films and short films, as well as out-of-competition sections like NEXT, New Frontier, Spotlight, Midnight, Premieres, and Documentary Premieres. The culmination of the Sundance Film Festival is its awards ceremony, where winning a Festival award can be life-changing for a filmmaker and can bring attention to impactful stories that might not have otherwise reached wider audiences.

The Sundance Film Festival has a rich history of fostering new voices and risk-taking films, creating an enduring brand that represents a legacy as well as a forward-looking ethos. The brand identity, developed by PORTO ROCHA, supports a multiplicity of stories and perspectives, with a logo defined by a film-inspired aspect ratio that is used throughout the brand assets as a framing device for footage and stills. The brand elements support a variety of layouts and compositions, reflecting the diverse stories told at the Festival.

The Festival's digital presence, including apps, websites, and other online platforms, shapes much of how audiences experience life today. The Festival's brand identity is designed to seamlessly support this digital world, ensuring that the software teams and developers driving growth and making it all run smoothly are recognized for their contributions.

In addition to the annual Festival, Sundance Institute supports independent artists throughout the year through various programs and initiatives, providing resources and opportunities for filmmakers to develop their craft and tell their stories. The Institute's commitment to independent storytelling and artistic freedom has made the Sundance Film Festival a beacon for original voices and fresh perspectives in the world of independent film.
