As temperatures start to drop, we naturally start to think of the Sundance Film Festival. Earlier this month, we spent the day at the Sundance Resort for the annual Sponsor Summit. The Festival continues to be one of the state’s leading creative assets, and it was great to dive into the 2018 event, spending time with our fellow sponsors, including IMDb, Adobe, Canon and Unity. We spent time getting to know each other, hearing initial plans for the Festival, and brainstorming valuable ways to work together.
