The Sundance Film Festival reported a cyber attack today, which caused network outages and shut down its box office. The attack appears not to have affected the days festivities, and the Sundance Team is working to get everything back online.

Sundance’s Twitter has declared that, “Our artist’s voices will be heard and the show will go on.”

The attack was announced through Twitter around 11 AM Pacific Time, with an update that systems were being restored shortly after. A third tweet in the afternoon announced that all systems were back up.

The Sundance Film Festival is an annual showcase of work by American and international independent filmmakers that takes place in Park City, Utah. This year’s festival started in January 19 and will last until January 29, and features work by directors such as Macon Blair, Eliza Hittman, Miguel Arteta, and Cate Shortland.
