The 2023 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour Is Coming to a Theater Near You

Award winner “When You Left Me On That Boulevard” is one of seven shorts featured on the 2023 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour.

A slice of the 2023 Sundance Film Festival… at your local art house theater! Whether you’re discovering these shorts for the first time or reliving your 2023 Fest experience, the 2023 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a great way to sample the artistic offerings of this year’s Festival and get to know an exciting variety of voices in independent film.

“Each year, we are thrilled to push shorts to new audiences around the country,” says Mike Plante, Sundance Institute’s senior programmer for short films. “When you want to see emerging filmmakers who are inventing fresh characters, one of the go-to worlds has to be short film. And to be able to work with independent art houses to reach so many communities is the icing on the cake.”

The Festival’s Short Film Program has long been established as a place to discover talented directors, such as alumni Andrea Arnold, Lake Bell, Damien Chazelle, Destin Daniel Cretton, Debra Granik, Rashaad Ernesto Green, Reinaldo Marcus Green, Todd Haynes, Sterlin Harjo, Sky Hopinka, Shaka King, Dee Rees, Joey Soloway, Taika Waititi, and many others.

This year’s tour features a 90-minute theatrical program of seven short films from the 2023 Sundance Film Festival — including two Festival Award winners — with fiction, documentary, and animated shorts from around the world. The tour kicks off June 9 in Austin, Texas, and travels to dozens of cities across the U.S. and beyond.
