The 2016 Sundance Film Festival lineup has been announced, and as many a year prior, features a slew of the most anticipated films of the year.
The highly anticipated program features narratives, documentaries, episodic work and events in the Premieres, Documentary Premieres, Spotlight, Sundance Kids and Special Events sections and takes place January 21-31 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Sundance and Ogden, Utah.
Among the films that have premiered in these sections in recent years are Boyhood, Brooklyn, Twenty Feet from Stardom, Life Itself, The End of the Tour, Mistress America, Frank, Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, Shaun the Sheep and The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst.
This year, films span the spectrum of the socially relevant, technologically advanced, and, of course, forward thinking creativity, with festival favourites and world premieres across multiple genres.
Amongst some of the films we are looking most forward to, are new ones from Kelly Reichardt, John Krasinski, Ira Sachs, Whit Stillman, and Todd Solondz, while on the documentary side of things, filmmakers like Spike Lee, Chris Hegedus, DA Pennebaker, and Werner Herzog provide their latest.
Films which have premiered elsewhere to acclaim, include Cemetery of Splendor (Cannes), Miles Ahead (NYFF), Rams (Cannes), and The Lobster (Cannes)
