Festival Pass Exchange & Offers

Sundance & FFA Partner for SIO Diversity Pass Program

For the second year, through a partnership with the Film Festival Alliance, the Sundance Industry Office (SIO) will offer five complimentary and five discounted SIO Industry Passes for the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. This opportunity is open to FFA members who identify as historically underrepresented festival professionals in an effort to cultivate diversity within the film festival industry. In 2019, out of the 10 passes that were comped or discounted, attendees represented 9 states and Canada, 9 were first-time Sundance Film Festival attendees, 8 were women, 6 were people of color, and 3 were from the LGBTQ community.

All applicants must be current members of FFA, or belong to an organization who is a current member; and may not have received a comp SIO Industry Pass for the 2018 or 2019 Sundance Film Festivals. Follow this link to complete the application by October 4.
