Sundance Film Festival

It's said that independent filmmakers set their calendar by Sundance.

Sundance is a leading showcase for new films, particularly emerging directors, and the key de-facto marketplace for American and international independent movies. It includes competitive sections for American and international dramatic and documentary films -- feature-length films and short films - and a group of non-competitive showcase sections, including Premieres, New Frontier, Spotlight, and Park City at Midnight. In 2010, the festival introduced a new non-competitive section "NEXT" for low- and no-budget narrative films.

New Zealand films that have screened at Sundance include Whale Rider, Rain, Boy, Eagle vs Shark,The Orator, What We Do in the Shadows, Slow West and Turbo Kid. Short films that have screened include Ebony Society, Redemption, The Six Dollar Fifty Man and Vostok Station.
