The Contemporary International (CI) Team made a significant contribution to the success of the Sundance Film Festival over a three year period, with an overall objective of ensuring that filmgoers had a memorable and enjoyable experience at the Festival.

Our primary responsibility was to manage and supply a team for the Theatre Operations Department of the Festival.  This included liaison with Theatre and Venue Operators, Theatre Management Teams and coordinating with the Production and Technical departments as well as managing the theatre and volunteer staff for 14 theatres across Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance Village.

CI staff successfully provided a high level of service at the 800+ screenings that took place at each Festival, despite often difficult winter weather conditions and controversial premiers requiring special security.

In 2007, CI experts also managed Transport Operations, overseeing arrivals and departures at venues and related Festival sites.  In the same year, we were responsible for the safe movement of the Festival Entourage groups at theatres.  These groups consisted of movie stars, directors, producers and media.
