Robert Redford's annual Sundance Film Festival is scheduled for January 20-30, 2011. Celebrating independent filmmakers, Sundance is a favorite Park City tradition for locals, visitors and celebrities.
Each year, the Sundance Film Festival team reviews thousands of independent films from all across the world. These films span nearly every language known to man, broach any and all topics one could imagine, and represent many different genres -- from animation to indigenous works to cult films. The mission of the Festival programming team is to find features and documentaries that "inspire, challenge, delight, startle, move and thrill" viewers. Blockbuster independent films that have debuted at the festival include Reservoir Dogs, the Blair Witch Project, Shine, and Memento.
