The 2021 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour

A collection of eight images from the Sundance Film Festival Shorts program

This popular annual program returns with seven films from the most recent Sundance Film Festival! This year's presentation is free (with a ticket) as part of our Wex Open House.

The Sundance Film Festival shorts program is widely considered the premier showcase for short films and for close to 40 years has been the launching pad for many now-prominent filmmakers. Spanning fiction, documentary, and animation from around the world, this year's lineup provides audiences a taste of what the festival offers while demonstrating how short films often transcend traditional storytelling.
