The program, celebrating its fifth year, brings together established and emerging artists from film, art, performance, gaming, and new media technology. It provides the artists a film festival environment in which to share their work, and Festival audiences a place to explore the latest in cinematic innovation and transmedia storytelling. Sundance Film Festival senior programmer and curator Shari Frilot writes, “Today’s media environment assumes three-dimensional realities in time and space. Mobile networks, electronic gadgets, wireless Internet, and surveillance technologies now encrust our bodies, creating an electroskeleton that structures our modern lives, affecting our ethics and our decision making. As this evolution intensifies, New Frontier explores how storytelling and independent cinematic expression can exist at this forefront to compel audiences to engage with one another in ways that fortify our humanity.”
