2019 Sundance Docs in Focus

The 35th Sundance Film Festival takes place next month, running January 24-February 3, with a lineup consisting of 122 features, 73 shorts, 15 episodics, and 29 installations, performances, and VR experiences.

As I’ve done since 2011’s festival, I’ll profile each of the 50+ feature and long-form episodic documentaries in advance of the festival, beginning this Monday.

Please note that I am not reviewing these films – as a Documentary Programming Associate for Sundance, they are all very much recommended. These profiles simply provide some background about the creators of the class of 2019, noting past Sundance projects where applicable, and why readers should seek out the docs, either during the festival or later in the year at other festivals and/or in release. For a sample, check out last year’s series, which began here.
