Sundance Film Festival

From its earliest, pre-Robert Redford days as the U.S. Film Festival, this frosty January event in Utah's ski resort hamlet Park City has championed independence in American moviemaking and was key to the emergence of American Independent cinema from the early 1980s onward. Despite its high media profile these days, Sundance maintains sections devoted to non-commercial or "experimental" work and each year premieres some of the finest documentaries around.
