Sundance Adds Three To 2011 Lineup

Sundance Institute announced today that three additional feature films will world premiere in the out-of-competition Premieres and new Documentary Premieres sections of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival: Miranda July’s “The Future,” Rob Minkoff’s “Flypaper,” and Alison Ellwood and Alex Gibney’s “Magic Trip.” July’s “Future” was also announced as part of the Berlinale’s lineup today.

”It is significant that Miranda July is able to premiere The Future at our Festival in January and compete at the Berlin International Film Festival the following month. It is the mutual goal of both our Festivals to ensure that this independent filmmaker has as many opportunities as possible to present her work to domestic and international audiences alike,” said John Cooper, Director of the Sundance Film Festival, in a statement. “We are also honored to welcome to his first Sundance Film Festival Academy Award winner Rob Minkoff, well known to film audiences for ‘The Lion King,’ and excited to have Festival veterans Alison Ellwood and Alex Gibney returning to us once again.”

The Sundance Film Festival runs January 20-30 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. With the addition of these films, the Festival will present 117 feature-length films, representing 29 countries by 40 first-time filmmakers, including 25 in competition. These films were selected from 3,812 feature-length film submissions composed of 1,943 U.S. and 1,869 international feature-length films. 94 films at the Festival will be world premieres.
