Even though we’re separated physically, our Online Meetups allow you to connect with other creators. The Online Meetup begins with everyone viewing works-in-progress by Sundance Co//ab community members then listen and learn from live feedback between the creator and a Sundance Advisor. Afterwards, we all meet and mingle in virtual breakout rooms to discuss our thoughts on the works-in-progress and our own projects.

Join us for our first Online Meetup on May 7, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm (PT) as our artist-in-residence, filmmaker Éva Gárdos, shares her insight and advice as she answers questions from the creators of two works-in-progress selected from short films posted to Share Your Work. 

Éva Gárdos is an award-winning film director and editor born in Hungary which she left at the age of six. Francis Ford Coppola gave Gardos her first job in film, working as a production assistant on Coppola’s epic APOCALYPSE NOW in the Philippines. “That was my film school.” She went on to establish a career as a film editor (VALLEY GIRL, MASK, BASTARD OUT OF CAROLINA) working with distinguished directors such as Barbet Schroeder, Peter Bogdanovich, and Anjelica Huston. “All of the films I worked on had a dark side,” she recalls. “I’m always attracted to books, movies, art and music that are dangerous, oddly beautiful and funny in weird ways.” Éva’s screenwriting and feature film directorial debut, AN AMERICAN RHAPSODY, starred a young Scarlett Johansson. The film is based on the true life events of Éva’s family escaping from Hungary in the 1950’s and being forced to leave their infant child (Éva) behind. more...
