The full line-up of films in the 2018 festival has just been released
Carlos Lopez Estrada with Blindspotting and Christina Choe with NANCY are among the filmmakers making their feature film directing debuts in the U.S. Dramatic Competition.
Known for its celebration of independent films, the festival is set to take place in Park City, Utah in January 2018.
The executive director of the Sundance Institute Keri Putnam said in a statement: “We’re proud of the diversity of this year’s lineup; emboldening broader, more inclusive independent voices is a crucial part of our work at the Festival and throughout the year.
“These stories might inspire or move us, even occasionally make us uncomfortable – but they can shift our perspectives, spark conversation and create change.”
