The Sundance Festival , the most important event for independent cinema and the first annual show of the movie-goer circuit, will once again organize a face-to-face edition in 2022 after the hiatus caused by the coronavirus.

The event will return to the state of Utah (USA) between January 20 and 30, although it will adopt some of the changes caused by the pandemic, since it will maintain an online program after its virtual edition had more than 600,000 viewers this year.

“We are designing a safe and accessible festival where our audience and artists can come together to discover new work,” the organization said in a statement.

After the film industry adapted to virtual formats, many wondered if some of the assumed changes would be installed forever.
