The daddy of all independent festivals celebrates its 27th edition in 2011. Run in conjunction with the Sundance Institute - set up by Robert Redford to support independent film.
This year's festival runs from January 20 to 30 and will close with Dito Montiel's The Son Of No One. This year also sees the introduction of a new section - Documentary Premieres - to give greater exposure to this expanding area.
