Now that most of the featured flicks have been announced, we’re thrilled to report that, for the fifth year in a row, a bold selection of Kickstarter-funded works will be included. Hooray!


“This year at Sundance, we’ll be crossing our fingers for a great roster of docs and dramatic features in competition for major awards: NUTS!Spa NightTrapped, and When Two Worlds Collide. Documentary premieres include Film HawkMaya Angelou and Still I Rise (this team deserves major kudos for reaching their funding goal just a few short weeks ago), and Unlocking the Cage. Additional shorts in the mix include The Itching (Animated), The Procedure (Midnight), and Catching up (U.S. Narrative).


Film“A must-see event taking place at the festival will be Behind the Scenes with Anomalisa, featuring a special screening and Q&A with the film’s creators, Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson (and, not to mention, we’re sending major congrats to the Anomalisa team for snagging a Golden Globes nomination for Best Animated Feature). We’re also tremendously excited to report that The Skinny — created by and starring YouTube filmmaker Jessie Kahnweiler, & co-starring Illeana Douglas — also made it into the Special Events section. Additional shorts in the mix include The Itching (Animated), The Procedure (Midnight), and Catching up (U.S. Narrative).”
