Sundance Film Festival


The film staff saw much in Park City, Utah, during the 40th annual Sundance Film Festival. Here were our 10 top picks: stirring dramas and documentaries.

The grand jury prizes at 2024’s Sundance Film Festival went to “In the Summers,” “Porcelain War,” “Sujo” and “A New Kind of Wilderness.”

In our final Wide Shot from the 2024 Sundance Film Festival, we round up the documentaries receiving buzz — or deserving of it — and catch up with Funny or Die’s Henry R. Muñoz III.

About 150-200 pro-Palestinian protesters, including talent affiliated with several films at the festival, took to Main Street in Park City on Sunday, day 107 of the Israel-Hamas war.
