My name is Marianne and I am the coordinator of Sundance Institute’s Ignite program, an initiative for emerging filmmakers ages 18 to 25. In anticipation of the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, I’m reaching out to colleges and universities with some great opportunities we have for young adults this year. Seeing as the festival will be digital, I’m very excited about the possibility of connecting with students who would’ve been unable to travel to Utah in years past. 
We will be offering the Young Adult Discount presented by Adobe, 50% discount off all Sundance Film Festival passes and tickets, as well as Ignite Day, a day of free programming catered to young adult filmmakers. Please see the attached PDF for more information about the Young Adult Discount, Ignite Day events, and how your students can get involved. Additionally, feel free to share this information with any students and alumni who are within the 18 to 25 year old age range.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions you may have. Also if there is a different person at your school who I should be corresponding with, please let me know. 
Thank you so much and happy holidays!

Marianne Verrone
