On Jan. 5, Sundance announced that its in-person gathering had been canceled, and it will instead take place virtually from Jan. 20-30. “While we’re disappointed to not provide the full hybrid experience and gather in-person as intended, audiences this year will still experience the magic and energy of our festival,” organizers said in a statement.
The Variety Streaming Room is dedicated to presenting virtual conversations that span private screenings of upcoming projects in film and TV, exclusive Q&As with creators and talent and relevant B2B discussions with industry thought leaders.
