Sundance Film Festival 2022 Lineup Announced

As we’re closing out the year with plenty of great titles to wrap up the 2021 movie season and truly begin the “meat” (if you will) of Awards Season, 2022 is right around the corner and the Sundance Film Festival has announced today its lineup of films that will be leading the festival from Thursday January 20th to the 30th of next year. The festival will resume in-person screenings for the first time since 2020, but will also offer digital screenings for those that cannot (or do not want to) attend in person.

On the hybrid approach, festival director Tabitha Jackson explained that “The online dimension of the festival was something that after, having done it last year, we valued greatly. We need to attract diverse audiences, and for us this idea of sustainability and community and care is all addressed by having an online dimension to the festival. People don’t have to fly here in order to participate. They don’t have to be of a certain socio-economic status to be able to afford to stay for ten days in Park City. They don’t have to be able to physically navigate icy mountain streets. We can expand the range of people who can participate in the festival, in the work and in the conversation.”
