Park City Magazine reminds us that is is time to start making your list of the films you’re dying to watch at the upcoming 2019 Sundance Film Festival (Jan. 24 - Feb. 3) because the Sundance Institute just released the feature film line-up for the fest. True to the Sundance Institute’s ongoing mission to provide a platform for underrepresented voices, the program includes films from 33 different countries, 45 by first-time filmmakers.

Reflecting on independent filmmaking and this year’s crop of films, President and Founder of the Sundance Institute Robert Redford said “Society relies on storytellers. The choices they make, and the risks they take define our collective experience. This year’s Festival is full of storytellers who offer challenges, questions and entertainment. In telling their stories, they make difficult decisions in the pursuit of truth and art; culture reaps the reward.

More announcements will be coming soon, but in the mean time, feel free to peruse the entire selection below. Ticket packages and passes are currently on sale via the Sundance Institute website. Individual tickets for Utah locals go on sale January 17.

In February, Park City will be the epicenter of the competitive skiing universe.
