Rockstar MICHELLE MATTHEWS: AN INDIE INSPIRATION
During her two years at Sundance, Michelle has witnessed how film can help transform society, shift cultural norms, and encourage conversations where none previously existed.
By managing the overall brand identity of the film festival and the institute itself, she’s bringing together a community of like-minded people. Every year, the festival is supported by over 2,000 volunteers and more than 45,000 attendees—most of them returning.
As a designer, there's nothing more rewarding for Michelle than to see a concept through to reality.
A scene-stealer in her own right, she especially loves the feedback on her creations. Even if it’s bad, it’s good.
Michelle's openness and willingness to listen and accept people's opinions—for better or worse—is what makes her a perfect fit for Sundance.
LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION
Bringing people together from all walks of life and every corner of the globe to unite over their love of film and storytelling is what keeps the festival going—and growing—every year.
After all, filmmaking takes fireside storytelling to the next level, bringing tales to life on the big screen.
Michelle is excited about what lies ahead for Sundance.
She’s also excited about what lies ahead for young filmmakers and other creatives who have the latest technology at their disposal.
She knows they have the potential to change the world, one review at a time.
