As Hollywood descends onto Park City, Utah, for the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, the ghost of Harvey Weinstein looms large. The festival’s identity is irrevocably linked to the disgraced producer, who many say helped birth the independent American film industry by giving a platform to early Sundance breakouts like Sex, Lies and Videotape and Reservoir Dogs.

But when he wasn’t aggressively brokering deals on Main St., Weinstein was using the festival as a backdrop for some of the predatory behavior detailed in the explosive reporting that led to his stunning demise and the eventual emergence of the #MeToo movement. For instance, the $100,000 settlement he paid Rose McGowan stemmed from a 1997 “episode in a hotel room” at the festival, in which Weinstein allegedly raped the then-23-year-old actress.

In light of the accusations, Sundance director John Cooper announced that this year’s festival, which he called “the first grand community gathering” in the post-Weinstein era, would be a safe space for people to work and watch movies, while also confronting the issues at hand.

“We have a code of conduct, and we’ve stepped up with some systems with the Park City police department and security at hotels in place if anything happens at the festival,” Cooper told Variety. Though Sundance has always enforced its code of conduct, it was traditionally a set of guidelines meant to keep festival staff in check. This year, however, it’s expected to be more visible at venues across the city. The festival has also created a hotline where people can directly report any misconduct. “There’s a finer eye on security at our events now,” Cooper added.

Speaking at a press conference Thursday, Sundance founder Robert Redford called Weinstein a “moment in time,” and said that the festival and its brand will survive. “We stand for diversity and creativity and a lot of things that are in direct opposition to that behavior,” added Keri Putnam, the Sundance Institute’s executive director. “Of course these things sickened us that happened during the festival. It was nothing we were aware of.”

But Weinstein’s Sundance behavior speaks to a larger problem of film-festival culture writ large. Imagine putting everything that’s wrong with Hollywood—the gender bias, the lack of inclusivity, the uneven power dynamics—in a duck press and then distilling it down to its very essence, compressed over 10 days of marathon movie-watching and booze-soaked bacchanal nights. Things can get ugly, especially given that a lot of film-festival meetings have traditionally taken place in hotel rooms.

So how do festivals like Sundance ensure that they’re a safe space moving forward? Well, the new hotline and the expanded code of conduct are certainly good places to start, but McGowan has another idea.

“You’ve got 96 percent male directors in the Directors Guild of America,” she said at this month’s Television Critics Association event. “Fix that, and then you’ll have a different Sundance, won’t you? Fix it at every corporation in the city. Fix it in every industry, because we all know the truth.”

Putnam agrees. “It’s about more than a few individual men,” she said Thursday. “It’s about the underlying systems of power.” Sundance is doing its part to change the culture by providing a platform for women to be heard. An impressive 37 percent of this year’s lineup is comprised of female-directed films, some of which deal with themes ripped from daily headlines.

Seeing Allred, a documentary about lawyer Gloria Allred—who has long been a defender of women and has become a major force in the #MeToo movement—will have its world premiere at Sundance before it bows on Netflix on Feb. 19. Allred will also join Jane Fonda and Common as the marquee speakers at Saturday’s “Respect Rally.” The event is organized by the same group behind last year’s star-stacked Women’s March, which unfolded through Park City’s main artery the day after Trump’s inauguration. It’s just one of the events planned with the hopes of sparking the conversation about how to empower women in film and beyond.

According to Redford, having a conversation led by women is a good place to start. “It’s changing the order of things, so women have a stronger voice,” he said. “Now I think it’s more even-handed. The role for women is to exercise their voices. The role for men is to listen and let women’s voices be heard and think about it.”

The Sundance Film Festival runs Jan. 18 to 28 in Park City, Utah
