2012 Sundance Film Festival Announces Films in Competition

Published on December 1, 2011 by Judy

Park City, UT — Sundance  Institute announced today the films selected for the U.S. and World Cinema  Dramatic and Documentary Competitions of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The Sundance  Film Festival will take place January 19 through 29 in Park City, Salt Lake  City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. The complete list of films is available at www.sundance.org/festival.

Robert Redford, Founder and President of Sundance Institute  remarked, “We are, and always have been, a festival about the filmmakers. So  what are they doing? What are they saying? They are making statements  about the changing world we are living in. Some are straight-forward, some  novel and some offbeat but always interesting. One can never predict. We know  only at the end, and I love that.”

John Cooper, Director of the  Sundance Film Festival, said, “In these challenging economic times, filmmakers  have had to be more resourceful and truly independent in their approaches to  filmmaking. Looking at this year’s submissions, the result is more fully  realized visions and stronger stories; we are proud to see the Festival  emerging as a key indicator of the health and creativity of our filmmaking  community. The overall quality of the films in the 2012 Competition section will  make for an exciting Festival and a remarkable year ahead for independent film  audiences everywhere.”

For the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, 110  feature-length films were selected, representing 31 countries and 46 first-time  filmmakers, including 26 in competition. These films were selected from 4,042  feature-length film submissions composed of 2,059 U.S. and 1,983 international  feature-length films. 88 films at the Festival will be world premieres
