WOODLAND HILLS, CA (January 16, 2020) – With the 2020 Sundance Film Festival on the horizon, Panavision is proud to announce that its products and services are once again key contributors at one of the world’s most influential filmmaking events. Panavision and its post-production subsidiary Light Iron have played a major role in the Sundance lineup, collaborating with independent filmmakers on 30  unique projects screening or competing at this year’s festival, taking place from Jan. 23 – Feb. 2 in Salt Lake City.

The wide range of innovative and specialist services provided by Panavision and Light Iron showcase the end-to-end capabilities the companies are able to offer the creative community.
