The Sundance Film Festival unveiled the 2014 lineup for its Spotlight, New Frontier and Park City at Midnight sections on Thursday. Among the highlights are Richard Ayoade's mistaken-identity thriller The Double, which stars Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska, and Steven Knight's Tom Hardy starrer Locke.
The news comes a day after Sundance revealed its competition slate, with such films as Jim Mickle's Cold in July (starring Michael C. Hall, Don Johnson and Sam Shepard) and first-time feature helmer John Slattery's God's Pocket (starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Richard Jenkins) vying for top honors.
At this Festival, Sundance will debut a new section for young audiences. The Deseret News has this article about that development. Here are excerpts.
Sundance officials announced Thursday the creation of Sundance Kids, which is being programmed in partnership with the Utah Film Center's Tumbleweeds program.
The new section will debut during the 2014 festival and will feature the world premiere of "Ernest and Celestine," about a mouse who forms an unlikely bond with a bear, and the U.S. premiere of "Zip & Zap and the Marble Gang," about two twin brothers who uncover a mystery at their school.
Patrick Hubley, artistic director of the Utah Film Center and founder of Tumbleweeds, said the collaboration with the Sundance Institute is an opportunity to feature international and independent films for children.
