21 features and 27 shorts will be presented at this year's Sundance Institute at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) series, slated for May 31 - June 10 in Brooklyn. Along with film, the program includes theater, musical performances, panel discussions, filmmaker Q&As and more. The line up was selected by Sundance Film Festival director of programming John Cooper and BAMcinematek's curator, Florence Almozini. The series will open this year with Tamara Jenkins' "The Savages" starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, which had its world premiere at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Other highlights include this year's narrative grand jury prize winner "Padre Nuestro" by Christopher Zalla and Jason Kohn's "Manda Bala," which won the documentary grand jury prize winner.
