Two World-Premiere Documentaries Added to Festival Lineup & Individual Tickets On Sale Now January 13

The nonprofit Sundance Institute announced today the addition of two world premiere feature films for the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. The Festival will take place online at Festival.Sundance.org; on The Spaceship, a bespoke immersive platform; and in person at seven Satellite Screens venues around the country during the Festival’s second weekend. The Festival takes place January 20–30, 2022; ticket packages are currently on sale; Single Film Ticket sale begins on January 13 at 10 a.m. MT (January 12 at 10 a.m. MT for membership pre-sale).

The Sundance Film Festival is the flagship public program of Sundance Institute. Throughout the year, the majority of the Institute's resources support independent artists around the world as they make and develop new work through access to Labs, direct grants, fellowships, residencies, and other strategic and tactical support.

Added to the program in the Special Screenings section are The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales directed by Abigail E. Disney and Kathleen Hughes and Phoenix Rising directed by Amy Berg.

"We’re so pleased to welcome these two dynamic films into our program,” said Kim Yutani, the Festival’s Director of Programming. “These bold, compelling, provocative documentaries tell indelible stories each from a searing first person perspective that we know will spark critical dialogue.”

Today’s additions add to the 2022 Festival slate, where 83 feature-length films will screen representing 28 countries, and 39 of 94 (41%) feature film directors are first-time feature filmmakers. Fifteen of the feature films and projects were supported by Sundance Institute in development through direct granting or residency labs.

Seventy-eight, or 91%, of the Festival’s feature films will be world premieres. Director demographics are available in an editor’s note below.

The latest additions to the 2022 Sundance Film Festival are:

SPECIAL SCREENINGS

The American Dream and Other Fairy Tales / U.S.A. (Directors: Abigail E. Disney, Kathleen Hughes, Producers: Abigail E.
