MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) —The Sundance Film Festival kicks off this week, but the event faces major changes.
Festival organizers have canceled in-person events after they selected the Macon Film Festival as an official 2021 Sundance satellite screen.
Steven Fulbright — president of the board director for Macon Film Festival — says the pandemic caused the change, but people can still join the festivities online.
“Everyone across the country can still experience the Sundance Film Festival virtually on Festival.sundance.org,” said Fulbright. “So people who have never been able to experience a festival before in Park City can now log on and buy tickets to see wonderful independent films.”
The Sundance Film Festival runs from January 20 to February 3, featuring over 70 films. Fulbright says the Macon Film Festival will take place this Summer.
