The Sundance Film Festival typically begins with a question. Which film on this year's slate will achieve the level of success found by one of last year's hits. And so, Sundance 2013 begins with festival goers asking: "What will be this year's Beasts of the Southern Wild?"
Check out the first seven films slated for the 42nd New Directors/New Films Festival, including new work by Sarah Polley and Shane Carruth, a Bulgarian feature (the first one at the festival in 35 years), and more!
