The Sundance Collection at UCLA

Our documentary Breadmakers (Director Yasmin Fedda) has been added to the Sundance Collection at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).

The Sundance Collection at UCLA was established in 1997 in order to provide long-term access to independent film production. It’s a joint effort between the UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Sundance Institute.

The Sundance Collection at UCLA underscores the importance of independent production while recognising that such films are at much greater risk of disappearing from the public sphere than larger budget, studio-based cinema.

Breadmakers was originally screened at the Sundance Film Festival in 2008.
