It's hard to believe that Steve James' groundbreaking documentary "Hoop Dreams" made its big debut at the Sundance Film Festival exactly 20 years ago. What's not hard to believe, however, is the festival's long-lasting appreciation for the classic. In honor of its 20th anniversary, this year Sundance hosted a special screening of the documentary to commemorate its place in independent film history.

Meanwhile, director Steve James returned to the festival this year with his latest film "Life Itself," a documentary feature about the life and times of acclaimed film critic Roger Ebert. In honor of Ebert, Indiewire's parent company SnagFilm's has collected 16 of Ebert's favorite films from the SnagFilms' collection, including "Nosferatu," "Wendy and Lucy" and "The Cruise. All are available to watch now. 

"Hoop Dreams" is also available to watch on SnagFilms here, along with a vast number of other classic Sundance films.
