Sundance Film Festival moved completely online due to rising Covid cases
Baku, January 6, AZERTAC
The annual Sundance Film Festival will be held completely online this year due to the rising numbers of coronavirus cases, according to Independent.
Organisers said it was a “deep loss” not to have an in-person event but that pressing ahead as planned was neither “safe nor feasible”.
The 2022 festival in Park City, Utah, was scheduled to be a “hybrid” event, with both virtual and in-person access.
Sundance Institute chief executive Joana Vicente and festival director Tabitha Jackson explained the “difficult decision” in a statement online.
