FInd huge savings on retail prices at

On 2:00 pm on Nov. 17 Keri Putnam sat poised with a smile across her face opposite me at a table on the second floor conference room of the Schwartz Center. Despite a camera to my left, Putnam remained relaxed and ready — after all, this is not her first interview. For the half-hour that followed, I, along with the Cornell Daily Sun Multimedia Department, clung to Putnam’s every answer, from her personal career journey to her keen insight on inclusive storytelling in film. 

Before climbing the ranks in the film industry, Putnam studied theater history and literature at Harvard University. She started her film career at HBO and continued there for 15 years, going on to work at Miramax Films for four years. This all led to her 2010-2021 role as CEO of Sundance Institute — arguably the highest position in the sphere of influential U.S. filmmaking.  

Putnam is one of Cornell’s 20 active A.D. White Professors-at-Large. As part of this initiative, she traveled to Ithaca from Nov. 14 to Nov. 18. Throughout the week, Putnam talked with numerous Cornellians ranging from students in the Performing and Media Arts Department to the Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management. The keynote event of Putnam’s trip was a special preview screening of Nanny, winner of Sundance’s 2022 U.S. Grand Jury Prize in Drama, at Cornell Cinema.
