The 22 jury members for this year’s virtually unfolding Sundance Film Festival have been revealed. Jurors include actors Cynthia Erivo
and Daniela Vega
, filmmakers Julie Dash
and Joshua Oppenheimer
, author Hanya Yanagahira (“A Little Life”), and many more. They will bestow awards on features and short films at the festival’s digital closing ceremony on February 2. The event will be live-streamed, and winning films will be available for special extended-run viewing the next day.
The awards, which recognize standout artistic and cinematic achievement, are decided upon by six section juries. As in years past, festival audiences have a role in deciding the 2021 Audience Awards, open to films in the U.S. Competition, World Competition, and Next categories.
As previously announced, the juried Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize was awarded to “Son of Monarchs
.” Below are all this year’s jury members, with bios courtesy of the Sundance Film Festival.
