Sundance Institute convenes a full slate of provocative and agenda-setting independent films at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, beginning with today’s announcement of the 66 films selected for U.S. Competition, World Competition and NEXT, as well as a slate of environmentally focused programming under the Festival’s New Climate program. The Festival hosts screenings in Park City, Salt Lake City and at Sundance Mountain Resort January 19-29.
There’s seemingly only one genre film in the first announcement, A Ghost Story, written and directed by David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon, Peter Pan).
Casey Affleck (ParaNorman, The Killer Inside Me), Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Rob Zabrecky, and Liz Franke star in this story of a ghost and the house he haunts.
A Ghost Story is having its world premiere at the festival.
