2022 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour

The 2022 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour is a 95-minute theatrical program of 7 short films curated from the 2022 Sundance Film Festival short film program, including three titles that won Festival awards. Considered the premier showcase for short films and the launchpad for many now-prominent independent filmmakers, the Festival includes fiction, documentary and animation from around the world. Throughout its almost 40 years of history, the Festival has always supported short films, providing a platform for both established and new filmmakers to connect with audiences. The 2022 Short Film Tour program is a sampling of Festival offerings and a testament to the unique storytelling potential that the format holds. Audiences who missed the Sundance Film Festival – which took place online and in-person in 7 cities across the country from January 20 through January 30 this year – can enjoy a mix of fiction, documentary, and animated shorts that are funny, sad, inspirational, and full of strong characters.

Summer of Soul Film Screening

In his acclaimed debut as a filmmaker, Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson presents a powerful and transporting documentary—part music film, part historical record created around an epic event that celebrated Black history, culture and fashion. Over the course of six weeks in the summer of 1969, just one hundred miles south of Woodstock, The Harlem Cultural Festival was filmed in Mount Morris Park (now Marcus Garvey Park). The footage was largely forgotten–until now. Summer of Soul shines a light on the importance of history to our spiritual well-being and stands as a testament to the healing power of music during times of unrest, both past and present. The feature includes concert performances by Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sly & the Family Stone, Gladys Knight & the Pips, Mahalia Jackson, B.B. King, The 5th Dimension and more.

Summer of Soul is presented in partnership with Northern Nevada Black Cultural Awareness Society. 

Run time: 1 hour 57 minutes

Free. Advanced registration is required.

The Longest Fight – Film Screening and Panel Discussion

In 1906, Goldfield was Nevada’s largest and most prosperous city and the epicenter of America’s last great gold rush. On September 3rd of that year, Baltimore’s Joe Gans, the first African American champion, defended his lightweight crown against Oscar “Battling” Nelson, a white brawler, in a fight that had no scheduled duration. It was a fight to the finish.

In this film, documentary filmmaker Ted Faye introduces the story by exploring Goldfield at its boom, the impact, and importance of the fight, and the way in which residents have memorialized its history.

Film is approximately 30 minutes in length. A panel discussion will follow the screening and includes Kenny Dalton, President, Our Story, Inc., Dr. Elisabeth Raymond, Professor of History, Emerita, UNR, Mike Martino, Nevada Boxing Consultant, and filmmaker, Ted Faye.

Produced in association with Our Story, Inc. with support from Nevada Humanities.
