Sundance at a Theater Near You

Danielle Johnsen :: Thursday, January 28th, 2010 1:00 pm

So you couldn’t afford a ski chalet and a trip to Park City this year? Miss out on all the celebrity sightings and killer parties? Oh, you were just interested in the films premiering there? Well, you are in luck then. Sundance is headed to a city near you. Tonight, eight theaters in cities across America will get the chance to view and discuss some of the more critically favored films of the festival. The filmmakers and producers will be on hand to chat a bit about the process behind their films and the audience will get a closer look at what its really like to see a film in a festival setting, just without the gifting suites and parties. This is a new addition to the festival’s program and is being done in the hopes of broadening the awareness of both the festival and the films it celebrates.

Full list of films, filmmakers and venues after the jump.
