The Ultimate Sundance Watchlist: A Film to Stream for Every Year of the Festival, Starting in 1985

Our latest watchlist is more than three decades in the making: We dug into our archives and scoured streaming services to offer up a streaming feature film pick for every edition of the Sundance Film Festival, starting in 1985. (That’s the year Sundance Institute, founded in 1981, assumed operations of the Utah/U.S. Film Festival. Check the Festival timeline here.) Tell us: How many have you seen?
