Sundance Film Festival: Asia is an expansion of Sundance Institute’s programming in the region, further championing and promoting visibility for independent storytelling before a wider global audience. Through unique programs such as labs, grant funding, and special projects undertaken with key partners, Sundance Institute serves as a leading advocate for the independent filmmaking community.

To commemorate IDN Media’s commitment to the film industry, the 2021 Sundance Film Festival: Asia will be crafted to recognize, promote, and celebrate Asian filmmakers, including prominent and rising Indonesian filmmakers, in local and regional communities. The festival will present a number of programs to deepen and democratize artistic exchange and, hopefully, ignite new ideas with original voices and share it on a global stage.
