What a privilege it was to interview two staff members from the Sundance Institute. We interviewed Kara Cody, Assistant Director of Utah Community and Government Relations and Betsy Wallace, Chief Financial officer and Head of Business Development. I think when most people hear the word “Sundance”, they think of the Sundance Film Festival, arguably the premier independent film festival in the world. However, the Film Festival is only 10 days in January and it is only one of the many things the Sundance Institute does. The Institute is actually a non-profit organization and provides numerous services to the community. From free screenings and community engagement, to artist development and workshops for local high school students, what goes on the rest of the year in and through the Sundance Institute is more wide-reaching and community impacting than you may think. Kara and Betsy will give you a “behind the scenes tour” about what goes on at the Sundance Institute and all they do to promote the power of story and the art of film.
