The Letterboxd team selects the fifteen titles we’re most excited to see at this year’s all-virtual Sundance Film Festival.
As we head into the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, taking place from January 20–30, things look unfortunately a little similar to how they did last year. While the festival had hopes to make this year’s fest a combination of in-person and virtual screenings, after a fully digital fest in 2021, the Omicron surge put a late stop to those plans.
While folks are going to miss out on donning their parkas to cavort in Park City with their indie besties, the festival still has a bounty of exciting cinema to offer attendees from the comfort of their own homes. With two films each from Dakota Johnson and Regina Hall, the final performance of the late, great Michael Kenneth Williams, the latest features from filmmakers Cooper Raiff and Riley Stearns, and plenty more, our Sundance team (Mitchell Beaupre, Dominic Corry, Isaac Feldberg, Ella Kemp) has put together a list of the fifteen titles most necessary to add to your watchlist.
