Sundance 2022 Film Festival is Online

Sundance 2022 Film Festival is OnlineFor the second year in a row, Bay Area film fans can attend the Sundance 2022 Film Festival from home. The 83 feature films—which include 78 world premieres—have multiple screening times throughout the festival, and all will offer closed captioning, with post-film Q&As.

Sundance director of programming Kim Yutani said “this year’s program reflects the unsettling and uncertain times we’ve been living in for the past year and a half.”

Bay Area Talent

  • Bay Area comedian and television host W. Kamau Bell’s Bill Cosby docuseries, We Need to Talk About Cosby
  • Oakland filmmaker Reid Davenport’s documentary I Didn’t See You There explores the origins and legacy of the circus freak show from a perspective of disability
  • Julie Ha and Eugene Yi’s documentary Free Chol Soo Lee is a social justice story that springs from San Francisco’s Chinatown.
  • You’ve Never Been Completely Honest from Redwood City native Joey Izzo
  • Long Line of Ladies is a documentary set in the Northern Californian Karuk community by Rayka Zehtabchi and Shaandiin Tome
