Tisch at Sundance 2016

Tuesday, Dec 15, 2015

Tisch students and alumni continue to fuel the film industry, as evidenced by the 2016 Sundance Film Festival selections.

Nearly 30% of the films at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival are affiliated with Tisch alumni. Of the films in competition, 11 are Tisch written, directed, or produced – nearly double the number of films with this distinction as last year.

This year Tisch is celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the School. For 23 years, nearly half of the school's existence, NYU Tisch School of the Arts has had a presence at the Sundance Film Festival. We are proud to continue our support of independent and creative storytelling. Tisch’s presence at Sundance is made possible by philanthropic support from Amy P. & Frank M. Garrison and Molly & Sean Durkin.

Tisch's return to Sundance in 2016 is sure to be an exceptional year, particularly given the line up of films touched by our students and alumni. Click below to learn more about Tisch Alumni films at Sundance and to see the details of our alumni reception in Park City this year.
