The Atlanta Film Society (ATLFS) and The Plaza Theatre, in partnership with the nonprofit Sundance Institute, are pleased to share 11 films that will be presented in Atlanta as part of the Satellite Screens initiative for the 2021 Sundance Film Festival, January 28 – February 3, 2021. All 11 films will be making their world premieres at Sundance.
The films coming to Atlanta will be presented at The Plaza Theatre (1049 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Atlanta,

The Institute announced last month the new independent work selected for the 2021 Festival.
The Festival will take place digitally via a feature-rich, Sundance-built online platform and in-person
screenings across the country on Satellite Screens including in Atlanta (public health permitting). Online,
Festival attendees can gather in virtual waiting rooms, participate in live Q&A’s, and congregate in new
environments to interact in a range of ways, both new and familiar.
The Institute shared details of how the Festival will meet audiences on the online platform and Satellite Screens in December.
You can learn more about the films selected for the 2021 Sundance Film Festival and see the online
schedule on the Festival’s film program guide at festival.sundance.org. The Atlanta Film Society and The
Plaza Theatre will be revealing additional local programming including talks and events in midJanuary.
The Atlanta Film Society is the year-round, nonprofit parent organization of the annual Atlanta Film
Festival. In addition to the Sundance Film Festival partnership, the Atlanta Film Society will present the
45th annual Atlanta Film Festival from April 22 – May 2, 2021.
