Brand Storytelling returned to host its 7th annual event in Park City, Utah from Wednesday, January 18th through Saturday, January 21st. The event was attended by over 350+ brand representatives, agencies, content studios, and platform representatives who took part in viewing brand films, panels, Q&A, town halls, and networking alongside the opening days of Sundance Film Festival.

“Brand Storytelling has cultivated a strong reputation for attracting major players in brand-funded content, production, and distribution,” said Rick Parkhill, Director and Co-Founder of Brand Storytelling. “Previous years introduced the brand marketing community to films like 5BDear Santa, and more. The mix of screenings, presentations, receptions, events, and activities provides great opportunity for relationship building and creative exploration.”

“When I was starting out as a creative, I often looked toward what other directors were doing for brands and thought ‘that’s what I want to do’,” said Everett Katigbak, Brand Storytelling Award winning producer from Stripe Press. “To be here at brand storytelling where that’s the focus, to be around peers that are driving this industry forward, and to be acknowledged for what I’ve contributed is a great feeling.”
