Sundance 2017 Announces Premieres, Spotlight, Midnight, and More Sections

     December 5, 2016


As awards season for 2016 kicks off, we’re already looking to see what next year has in store. The Sundance Film Festival announced on Monday a massive chunk of the films to be screened at the Park City, Utah fest via its Premieres, Documentary, Midnight, Kids, Spotlight, and Special Events sections.

It’s a pretty dense list, but there are already some standouts to keep an eye on, mostly hailing from the Premieres and Spotlight rosters. Colossal and Raw, both of which screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, have nabbed spots: the former stars Anne Hathaway and Beauty and the Beast star Dan Stevens in a story about a party girl and “a city-wrecking monster,” while the other is the cannibal horror flick so gruesome it reportedly made some audience members faint.

Some other titles that jump out include Wilson (a comedy starring Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern), the J.D. Salinger biopic Rebel in the Rye (starring Nicholas Hoult), Beatriz at Dinner from screenwriter Mike White and director Miguel Arteta (Enlightened), Luca Guadagnino’s A Bigger Splash follow-up Call Me By Your Name, and Jack Black and Jason Schwarztman in The Polka King.
