‘Napoleon Dynamite’ and other indie classics will return to Sundance Film Festival


The Salt Lake City Tribune announced that Napoleon Dynamite produced and edited by September Club founder Jeremy Coon is scheduled to return to the Sundance Film Festival in January.

A remastered 4K version of the 2004 comedy “Napoleon Dynamite” is one of eight classic independent films that got their start in Park City that will be screened at the 2024 Sundance Film Festival — celebrating its 40th year of operations under Robert Redford’s nonprofit Sundance Institute.

The institute announced the special screenings, as well as two other special events for the 40th festival, on Tuesday. Also announced were the 53 short films chosen to screen at this year’s festival, which runs Jan. 18-28 at venues in Park City and Salt Lake City.
