Sundance Film Festival Shorts Tour 2022

Scene from the film Sundance Film Festival Shorts Tour 2022

The 2022 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a 95-minute theatrical program of 7 short films curated from the 2022 Sundance Film Festival short film program, including three titles that won Festival awards.

Considered the premier showcase for short films and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers, the Festival includes fiction, documentary and animation from around the world. Throughout its almost 40 years of history, the Festival has always supported short films, providing a platform for both established and new filmmakers to connect with audiences.

The 2022 Short Film Tour program is a sampling of Festival offerings and a testament to the unique storytelling potential that the format holds. Audiences who missed the Sundance Film Festival—which took place online and in-person in seven cities across the country from January 20 through January 30 this year—can enjoy a mix of fiction, documentary, and animated shorts that are funny, sad, inspirational, and full of strong characters.
