Tisch at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival

Thank you for joining us in celebrating the 2021 Sundance Film Festival.

For 28 years, NYU Tisch School of the Arts has had a presence at the Sundance Film Festival. We were proud to continue our support of independent and creative storytelling during the virtual festival in January 2021.

This year, six of the films in competition were written, directed, or produced by a Tisch alumnus/a, and Tisch artists worked on 1 in 4 projects at the Sundance Film Festival. Be sure to check out the full affiliations list!

Congratulations to the Tisch alumni and friends who won an award at the festival! This year, the Tisch community won 1/3 of the awards at the Sundance Film Festival. See the full list of Tisch awards winners here.

Though this year did not allow us to gather at TISCH ON MAIN or mingle at the annual alumni party, NYU Tisch brought TISCH ON MAIN to the virtual space Thursday, January 28-Wednesday, February 3, 2021. 

Watch our Fireside Chats with alumni, faculty, and friends here!
