#HerStories, 550 Main St. - 2nd Floor

What’s exciting about the work of women directors in the Festival this year is the range of narratives and storytelling styles. Many are pushing boundaries; others look to recover our humanity. Sexuality abounds, as do coming-of-age stories (by both youth and adults). But these women’s films are distinguished by their fully realized, contemporary, self-possessed female characters. Join Eliza Hittman (It Felt Like Love), Jerusha Hess (Austenland), Lake Bell (In a World…), Lynn Shelton (Touchy Feely), Naomi Foner (Very Good Girls), and Stacie Passon (Concussion) with moderator Sharon Swart to see what, if anything, unites them.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication. If you have questions or comments, please email
