In addition to the usual roster of films and documentaries, Sundance Film Festival will keep broadening its spectrum about what does audio-visual storytelling mean. To do so, it’s programmed several exhibitions that include artworks of VR, augmented reality, AI, site-specific installations and live performances that will take place at Kimball Art Center and The Ray, among others.
But that’s not all: Sundance Institute keeps fostering and empowering young creatives (through the program Ignite), female filmmakers (program Women at Sundance), native Americans (Native American and Indigenous Program), musicians (Film Music Program), theatre-makers (Theatre Program), and more. A bet that expects to make the future a better place through sensitivity, education, and acceptance.
And although we could keep talking about the many initiatives that the film festival has started and supports, we’re here for the cinema, mainly. We’ve made a selection of ten unmissable films and documentaries that include art, dark metal, revenge, gender identity, injustice, prejudice, fashion and dark humour.
