The Sundance experience includes competitive sections for American and international cinematic achievements -- everything from dramas to comedies to documentaries to shorts -- and promises each festival visitor engagement in a wide array of exciting stories and thought-provoking projects. In 2010 alone, nine Sundance favorites went on to collectively earn 15 nominations at the Academy Awards. Without question, Sundance Film Festival remains one of the most productive and high-profile cinematic marketplaces anywhere.
With over 50,000 attendees in 2013, Sundance has steadily grown from a modest indie movement to a global sensation, one that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. For those filmmakers looking to network with industry experts and talents on the rise -- and for those film lovers eager to discover the best films on the circuit before they explode into the stratosphere -- Sundance is as good as it gets.
