Like every year, there’s quite a promising line-up of independent films from all over the world. There are usually a few outstanding films out of the line-up that receive a fair amount of buzz that eventually leads to a distribution deal, critical acclaim, and even awards contention throughout the remainder of the year. Who knows what will end up being this year’s equivalent to Beasts of the Southern Wild (a film to premiere at Sundance to go on to receive Oscar nominations). This year marks a return for a lot of talented directors who have been at the festival in the past and debuts of promising young talents who are just getting their start. I decided to pick out the 15 most anticipated films that I personally think will receive the most buzz at this year’s festival. I’m sure we’ll be reading about these films beyond Sundance."
