Bruins at Sundance 2021
Not surprisingly, the Sundance Film Festival has gone virtual this year. Beginning Thursday, Jan. 28, instead of trekking to Park City, Utah, you can watch festival programming from the comfort of your couch. When you do, be sure to check out the projects that our UCLA TFT alumni and faculty have been working on!
