The Sundance Film Festival as announced its slate of films  for 2020, showcasing 118 feature films from 27 countries. 

The films will screen in Park City January 23rd through February 2nd. According to a news release, there were a record 15,100 submissions for the 2020 festival, including 3,853 feature film submissions.

In a prepared statement, Robert Redford, President and Founder of the Sundance Institute said, “this year’s festival is full of films that showcase myriad ways for stories to drive change, across hearts, minds, and societies.”

Sundance organizers have sought to feature a more diverse group of films and filmmakers. According to the release, the narrative and documentary film slate includes 44 first-time directors. Among the films announced Wednesday, 52 were directed by one or more women, and 40 were directed by one of more persons of color.

This is Festival Director John Cooper’s final year as director. He says the program this year is a celebration of art and artists and also of the community that makes the annual pilgrimage to Park City to see the most exciting new work being made today.

Cooper announced earlier this year he would be stepping aside as director after the 2020 festival.

Films include a Taylor Swift documentary, a remake of the Swedish film ‘”Force Majeure, and Benh Zeitlin’s long-awaited follow up to “Beasts of the Southern Wild." Ron Howard directs a documentary about the horrific wildfire in Paradise, California.

Short films and other projects that will be featured during the festival haven’t been announced yet. For more information, including how to purchase tickets, go to sundance.org/festivals
