The 2019 Sundance Film Festival will boast “the most inclusive lineup we’ve had in a long time,” said new programming director Kim Yutani — and they have the numbers to prove it.
“There’s a shift happening, and we are not only part of it but we’re responsible for leading it,” Yutani said.
The prominence of underrepresented storytelling voices and the attention to statistics showing that growing diversity are also reflective of Yutani’s new position as the first woman and first person of color to direct the programming at a major international film festival. (SLTrib)
