The festival moved to nearby Park City in 1981, and a decade later officially switched its name to the Sundance Film Festival.

But as film lovers and critics, we often look to the screen to help us through the struggles we’re faced with outside the movie theater. Beyond entertainment, art has the power to lend us strength, hope, and inspiration. It can educate us, give us a vessel for catharsis, and enable us to build empathy for those we identify with on screen, as well as those we may not. In many ways, art’s impact is vital now more than ever.
