2017 Sundance Film Festival

The Sundance Film Festival will once again take over Park City, Utah from January 19 to January 29. With a roster of 66 films, the festival will once again hold court over a plethora of provocative, independent, environmentally-focused and iconic films. Robert Redford, founder of the Sundance Institute said: “From the passion and chaos of creativity, independent filmmakers make decisions to harness that energy, break new ground and tell their stories. This year’s Festival reflects every step of that journey, and shows how art can engage, provoke and connect people all over the world.”

American Paradise, Come Swim, Black Holes, and Hold On all round out the list of the Indie Shorts to see at this year’s festival, while Lemon has quickly shown itself as the need-to-see comedy about man whose life falls apart after his blind girlfriend leaves him. The cast, which includes Nia Long, Michael Cera, and Judy Greer, is headed up by Brett Gelman. Other must-sees include The Yellow Birds, which features Jennifer Aniston in a drama about two American soldiers fighting in Iraq; A Ghost Story, starring this year’s biggest Oscar contender. Casey Affleck, alongside Rooney Mara; To The Bone, which stars Lily Collins as a woman battling anorexia and Keanu Reeves. This year’s festival will also feature An Inconvenient Sequel, former Vice President Al Gore’s climate-change inspired sequel to the Oscar-nominated An Inconvenient Truth.
