When it comes to a film lover’s bonanza, France has Cannes. Canada has Toronto. And America’s leading festival is Sundance, which, for the past three decades, has produced buzz-worthy movies that have defied conventions. Back in 1994, the now classic Four Weddings and a Funeral premiered at Sundance, and its rapturous reception helped make it a U.S. blockbuster.
This year’s slate of films could become the most talked-about in years, with entries from Whit Stillman (the Jane Austen adaptation Love & Friendship), Kenneth Lonergan (the Matt Damon-produced Manchester By the Sea), and Amy director Asif Kapadia (the narrative film Ali & Nino). Which of these movies will follow in the footsteps of last year’s Brooklyn to Oscar success? Until next Tuesday (January 26), we’ll be on the ground covering the festival, braving the frosty Utah heights for the very first time. We’ll be posting daily diaries to the website, and be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest snaps and observations from Sundance.
