DESCRIPTION

Shari Frilot is curator of the Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier program, an exhibition and commissioning initiative that focuses on cinematic work being created at the intersections of art, film, and new media technology. As the programmer and curator, Frilot reviews work from new artists, decides which innovative projects she wants to put in front of the Sundance audience, and works to answer the question: How to show film art in an art film context?

Previously, Frilot was the Festival Director of the MIX festival in New York and Co-Director of Programming for OUTFEST. She is also a filmmaker, of works including Strange & Charmed, A Cosmic Demonstration of Sexuality, and the feature documentary Black Nations/Queer Nations?. She is the recipient of multiple grants, including from the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Media Arts Foundation.
