Sundance Short Film Festival Tour 2018

Fueled by artistic expression and limited only by their runtime, short films transcend traditional storytelling. They are a significant and popular way artists can connect with audiences.

From documentary to animation, narrative to experimental, the abbreviated form is no longer just for the novice. Shorts have and will continue to be an important part of cinema, storytelling, and culture.

The Sundance Film Festival has always been proud to treat short films with the highest regard and to give a home to new (and old) projects for audiences to discover and celebrate.

He will also feature a unique and updated version of Prokofiev’s “Peter and the Wolf” where each character in the story is a different pipe organ stop (trumpet, flute, etc.) and the audience not only hears the famous Prokofiev themes, but also learns to identify specific pipe organ sounds.

The concert ends with one of Mr. Krasinski’s famous silent film improvised 30-minute accompaniments, with elaborate orchestrations and harmonizations on the Hook to enrich the viewing experience of the film.
