The 2022 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT, plans to expand its virtual interactive venue, The Spaceship, as part of its New Frontier exhibition.

The event will also host a "Biodigital Bridge" which Sundance programmer Shari Frilot called a human-scale screen-enabling interaction between physical and digital attendees.

Created in partnership with immersive studio Active Theory, the bridge will support basic chat, but will mainly allow festival-goers to see how other attendees experience Sundance.

Frilot said the virtual platform "points to the vital landscape of how cinema and storytelling is going to manifest [going forward]. We're here to not only contribute to it, but to meet it and support it."
