The Sundance Institute has unveiled the nine films that will go on the road for a da y as part of the Sundance Film Festival USA initiative.
The films and film-makers will issue forth from Utah on January 27 and each one will visit a city, which this year includes the same eight venues from last year as well as the Washington Egyptian Theater in Seattle.
“A major component of the Sundance Institute mission is to expand and engage audiences for independent storytelling,” Sundance Institute executive director Keri Putnam said. “Sundance Film Festival USA is an extension of the Institute’s year-round support of independent theatres across the country – designed both to provide people with access to films premiering at the Festival, and to encourage interaction between artists and audiences.”
