Sundance has announced more programming for its upcoming film festival, in the Midnight, Spotlight and New Frontier selections.
The Spotlight category highlights films which have already played elsewhere, but are doing great things, including Yann Demange’s ’71’ starring Jack O’Connell, ’99 Homes’ with Andrew Garfield, the electronic music epic ‘Eden’ with Greta Gerwig, and French film ‘Girlhood’.
The Midnight category is a celebration of horror and genre flicks, and the selection of films includes a Kevin Bacon movie called ‘Cop Car’ and the Eli Roth directed ‘Knock Knock’, starring Keanu Reeves.
The New Frontier category showcases artistic pieces from new filmmakers, and there are six films chosen from the U.S, Australia, Canada and the U.K.
On the selections, Robert Redford, President and Founder of the Sundance Institute said, "The work of independent artists inevitably reflects the state of our culture and the times in which we live. Their stories are often irreverent, challenging, compelling and unexpected, and not only possess the power to move and hopefully inspire audiences, but also to speak to our shared humanity."
