The Sundance Institute has announced the films selected for the U.S. and World Cinema Dramatic and Documentary Competitions and the out-of-competition NEXT section of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, January 17-27 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah.
For the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, 113 feature-length films were selected, representing 32 countries and 51 first-time filmmakers, including 27 in competition. These films were selected from 12,146 submissions (429 more than for 2012), including 4,044 feature-length films and 8,102 short films. Of the feature film submissions, 2,070 were from the U.S. and 1,974 were international. 98 feature films at the Festival will be world premieres.
Festival-goers will be getting the first looks at “Ain’t Them Bodies Saints,” a Texas crime drama starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck; Daniel Radcliffe’s turn as beat poet Allen Ginsburg in “Kill Your Darlings”; and the high school romance “The Spectacular Now,” starring Shailene Woodley and this past year’s Sundance darling, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who received much acclaim for her powerful performance as an alcoholic in “Smashed.”
