A Presenting Sponsor of the Sundance Film Festival for the fourth year in 2014, Chase Sapphire once again featured a must-see gallery featuring iconic film memorabilia from past Sundance films—including Bobby Fischer Against the World.

The exhibition featured objects courtesy of the World Chess Hall of Fame including photographs by Harry Benson, a ticket to the 1972 World Chess Championship, related journals, and various Championship ephemera. These Fischer artifacts were featured alongside the original Riding Giants “jailhouse” shorts and Dave Grohl’s guitar featured in Sound City. 

The Film Memorabilia Gallery continues to inspire film-buffs and visitors alike, creating moments which become a source for great stories as well as opportunities to take photos in recreated film sets. Previous items have included original signed illustrations, props and costumes, producers notebooks, awards, still photos, collectors items and even one-of-a-kind motorcycles.
