Storytellers that Defy Expectations – and Defy Distance

The Sundance Institute is a champion of independent storytellers, filmmakers, digital artists, and composers from around the globe. By providing support, space, and inspiration, Sundance helps these artists create and showcase new work.

To foster collaboration between these artistic voices, the Sundance Institute turned to Polycom for collaboration solutions that are reliable, enterprise grade, and easy to use.

At its annual Sundance Film Festival, they used Polycom technology to bring world-famous directors and filmmakers in remote locations to live events and audience discussions. Reliable, seamless collaboration allows audiences and artists to connect on a deeper level.

"In the past, we've had a lot of requests to bring in people remotely, and sometimes we've had pretty poor results," said Justin Simmons, Associate Director of IT. "With Polycom, we have an easy solution that's also enterprise-grade—and it works."

The Sundance Institute also relies on Polycom for daily planning meetings and work sessions with their remote offices in LA, New York, and Park City. And employees are thrilled. "We do more video conferencing now than ever before, because we have a great solution," said Dave Ginsberg, CTO.

Now the Sundance Institute can help magnify the voices of storytellers everywhere—thanks to Polycom.
