Another Sundance Film Festival has come and gone, leaving a host of memorable movies in its wake. We spent the full 10 days of the festival digging through the lineup and found a number of highlights, with some of the expected breakouts finding company alongside a number of discoveries.

Of course, every audience member at a festival as big as Sundance has a different experience, and no single breakdown of the program’s best work is complete without multiple perspectives, so here’s a look at the best 2017 Sundance movies from several members of the IndieWire team, each of whom experienced the festival from a different angle this year. It’s safe to say that you’ll be reading a lot more about these movies in the months and years to come.
