Following on the heels of yesterday’s announcement of the films selected to screen in the four competition categories of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, the Sundance Institute has announced the lineup for its out-of-competition categories: Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, NEXT <=> and New Frontier.
“In many ways, the extremes of the Festival’s program are most readily apparent in our out-of-competition sections, which showcase the wildest comedies, the most terrifying horror films and uncompromised visions from singular voices springing up from around the country and the world,” notes director of programming Trevor Groth. “We hope audiences experiment with their film selections to an equal degree as these filmmakers have experimented with their storytelling.”
Among the films now added to the 2012 Sundance lineup are Andrea Arnold’s (Fish Tank) adaptation of Wuthering Heights, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s—of “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!” fame—Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie and Aurora Guerrero’s Mosquita y Mari, which—though Sundance will mark its world premiere—has already racked up one nomination for producer Chad Burris, courtesy of the Independent Spirit Awards.
For a complete list of the films making the trek to Park City for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival (save those in the Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections, set to be announced on December 5th), head to www.sundance.org/festival.
The 2012 Sundance Film Festival will take place from January 19th to the 29th.
