In an effort to increase the diversity of film festival professionals, organizers and programmers with access to Sundance Industry screenings, FFA partnered with the Sundance Industry Office for the fourth year, to award 8 FFA members who identify with historically underrepresented communities with 4 comp and 4 half-priced SIO Passes. FFA is pleased to congratulate the recipients of the 2022 SIO Diversity Pass Program. Looking forward to Sundance 2022!
Of the 2022 recipients, seven are women or non-binary, and the group represents African American, Pakistani, Asian-American, South Asian, and Latinx cultures, as well as the disabled community.
