2019 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour

The 2019 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a 97-minute theatrical program of seven short films selected from this year’s festival—widely considered the premier showcase for short films and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers for more than 30 years. Including fiction, documentary and animation from around the world, the 2019 program gives new audiences a taste of what the festival offers, from sharply written comedy and drama, to edgy genre and an intimate family saga.
