When is Biola Sundance offered?



Flag of USA

The leading venue for independent film, the Sundance Film Festival, is an immersive plunge into the art and commerce of the entertainment industry. During interterm, 20 Biola students and faculty will travel to the festival’s site in Park City, Utah, attend screenings, sit in on filmmaker interviews, course lectures, and participate in dialogues on film, faith and social responsibility as part of a three-unit intensive course highlighting independent filmmaking and its distribution process.

Biola students will join others who are part of the Windrider Forum, sponsored by Priddy Brothers Productions. Windrider is a loose partnership of several faith-based institutions, including the Colorado extension of Fuller Seminary, undergraduate film students from Biola University and Taylor University, award-winning student filmmakers from Angelus Film Festival, and members of the Park City church community. Participants screen ten films during their time at Sundance.
